Ants, spiders, and bees are three small animals that became the name of three surah in the Qur'an, Al-Naml (ants), Al Ankabut (Spider), and An-Nahl (bee). Ants are animals that bring food little by little without stopping. That said, these small animals can collect food for many years while he was no more than one year. Ant greed was so great that he tried and often succeeded assume something much bigger than his size, though something is not useful to him.
Furthermore, the Qur'an describes the spiders: its nest is where the most fragile (Surah 29:41), he is not a safe place, no matter who took refuge in the nest will be ambushed and destroyed. Never mind the insects are not similar, the males after finishing 'touch' any disergapnya to be destroyed by the female. Eggs that hatch jostled each other to be able to annihilate. Thus the experts explained, a very horrible picture of the spider.
However, the bees have instinct-language Al Qur'an- "on perintan God he chose the mountains and trees as living quarters" (Surah 16:68), and the hexagon-shaped nest made instead of five or four in order no waste within the premises. Food bees are fireworks, and do not like ants piling food, bee food processing and agro wax and honey are very useful for humans. Candles are used for illumination, and honey-Qur'an-word can be healing. Bees are very disciplined, menggenal division of labor, and all the useful tidk removed from the nest. The bees do not disturb unless they mess, even stings can be a drug.
The attitude of human life is often likened to different types of animals. There is a cultured human ants, which accumulate without any process, there are like spiders who like to prey, and there is also a full bee expediency. Prophet. likens a believer as bees, something that does not damage nor painful: It is not eaten but the good, except that does not produce helpful and if overwrite something does not damage nor break it. Well, can we be like bees, ants especially not a spider?
