Allah, the Creater of the Universe, Allah has not begotten nor is
begotten, the Knower and Watcher of All.

Let's look at the Bee.

{Qur'an 16:68} "And your Lord inspired the Bee, build your
dwellings in hills, on trees, and in (human's) habitations."

The imperative "build" above is the translation of the Arabic
word "attakhithi", which is feminine form (Arabic unlike
English, differentiates between the sexes).
The feminine form is used when all of those it refers to are
female, whereas the masculine is used when a group consists
of at least 1 male.
Therefore the Quran is in fact saying "build, you female bees.."
A swarm of bees (which collect honey and build the hive), are
female only.
Thus, the phrasing of this command is in agreement with the
Fact that male bees do not partake in the construction of
the hive.


Microscopes were not invented until 1610, Galileo invented
one of the first microscopes almost a thousand years after
illiterate shepherd Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
