Surah Ankabut (29) 06/02/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 29 (Ankabut – The Spider)

The parable of the spiders house

Verse 41
The parable of those who take protectors other than Allah is that of the Spider, Who builds (to itself) a house; but truly the flimsiest of houses is the Spider’s house; if they but knew.

This beautiful parable highlights the feebleness of taking protectors other than Allah. From the spider’s perspective its house is a fortress against small creatures, however from the perspective of mightier creatures,  the spider’s web is weak and flimsy.  The lesson we learn is that all authorities besides Allah SWT are truly weak and flimsy no matter how powerful they may appear.  As believers our exclusive reliance should be upon Allah SWT.
