The Bitter Honey Bee
Perseverance and hard work are two concepts which can turn a child’s life around if he or she internalises it early on in life. The Bitter Bee is a story of a bee, Miel, and his best friend, an ant named Naml. As children take the journey with Miel and Naml, they learn about how even though consistent hard work is frustrating, sometimes we do not see the results of our work until much later. Children also get educated about the Islamic principles that lay the foundation of any good Muslim’s life. By weaving together a relatable children’s story with concepts from Surah Al-Naml in the Qur’an, this book enables children to understand the importance of living a life of purpose and building resoluteness in life.

Being a Muslim it is our foremost duty to maintain cleanliness in our clothing, dwelling places, streets and public places. Muslim should have the highest level of cleanliness and personal hygiene as compare to other people. However, unfortunately, heap of garbage has become an identity of the Muslim localities.
