The frailest is the Spider’s house

Chapter ’Al-‘Ankabuut”- (The Spider) – 29

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahiminash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


 ٱتَّخَذَتْ بَيْتًا وَإِنَّ أَوْهَنَ ٱلْبُيُوتِ لَبَيْتُ ٱلْعَنكَبُوتِ لَوْ كَانُوا۟ يَعْلَمُونَ41b   إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِهِۦ مِن شَىْءٍ وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْحَكِيمُ 42

41b.  she built for herself a house, and lo! The frailest of all houses is the Spider’s house, if they but knew.


42.  Lo! Allah knoweth what thing they invoke instead of Him. And He is the Mighty, the Wise.

41b.  ‘Ittakhazat  baytaa.  Wa  ‘inna  ‘awhanal-buyuuti  la-baytul-  ‘Ankabuut.  Law  kaanuu  ya’-lamuun.


42.  ‘InnAllaaha  ya’-lamu  maa  yad-‘uuna  min  duuniHii  min-  shay’.  Wa  Huwal-  ‘Aziizul-Hakiim.



It is the condition of a spider that certainly she makes a house for herself, but that house cannot save its dweller and her belongings. If hand is jerked a little, even if one blows with pressure, it perishes. Flies and a species of insects can be caught in it, but it is useless for protection. Neither its dweller is safe and nor its ingredients escape from destruction.


The same state is of those, who make relationship with any other than Allaah Almighty. Those, who have concern with Him, come in His protection and they are saved from all kinds of disasters. Contrary to it those, who ask others for help, are unsafe, and their things cannot escape from destruction. It is surprising that neither the mankind does know this very little matter and nor understands if explained.


After that, it is commanded: No supporter, other than Allaah Almighty, can save His disobedient people from punishment. The sun, the moon and the stars or idols of gods and goddesses have no power. Chosen Servants of Allaah Almighty and Angels (peace be upon them) are not ready to hear from the disobedient. They try their best to please Allaah Almighty during their entire life. Neither anyone has any personal ability or power except Allaah Almighty that he may use it in His matters and nor they are owners of anyone’s harm or profit. Allaah Almighty is Who has permanent Power and Strength, Who bestows everything to His all creatures, Who gave Empire to the King and Prophet-hood to the Prophet. Neither He is needy of any other’s help and nor He desires counsel of any individual. As He is the Exalted in Might, He is the Wise too.
