Greatness and Glory of Allah

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)


 وَتِلْكَ ٱلْأَمْثَٰلُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ وَمَا يَعْقِلُهَآ إِلَّا ٱلْعَٰلِمُونَ43   خَلَقَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ بِٱلْحَقِّ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ 44

43.  And as for these similitudes, We coin them for mankind, but none will grasp their meaning save the learned.


44.  Allah has created the heavens and the earth with Truth. Lo! Therein is indeed a Portent for Believers.

43.  Wa  tilkal-‘Amsaalu  Nazri-buhaa  linnaas.  Wa  maa  ya’-qiluhaaa  ‘illal-‘Aalimuun.


44.  KhalaqAllaahus-samaawaati  wal-‘arza  bil-Haqq.  ‘Inna  fii  zaalika  la-‘Aayatal-lil-Mu’-miniin.  (Section – 4)



The Disbelievers used to criticize that presenting examples of Mosquito, Fly and Spider are not suitable according to Greatness and Glory of Allaah Almighty, because if the Qur’an were the Word of Allaah, then such light matters would not have been mentioned in it. Its answer has been given at various places. It has been caused to understand in this verse: The purpose of exemplifying is that reality of such thing become manifest for which the example has been given. It does not relate to Greatness and Glory of That Who coins the similitude. It has concern with that matter only which is required to be explained by any likeness. If that matter is light and contemptible itself, then its reality can be opened only by comparing with contemptible things. If your works were exemplary, then the similes would also have been nice. While your works are mean and disgraceful, then what can be said other than saying them equal to mean and contemptible things? The actual thing is “object of example and its suitableness with the real, which can be understood only by those who are intelligent”. Stupid people criticize only. They do not try to reach the bottom of the matter, but make up stories for fulfilling their aim.


Greatness and Glory of Allaah Almighty is apparent from it that He is The Creator of the skies and the earth, and He has fastened everything by a system. There are great philosophies hidden in the creation of all things and their protection. All such things are neither useless and nor toys. The Believers strengthen their belief by meditating into them that there can be no partner of Him in our little works, Who created such great things, as skies and earth etc., without having any partner or supporter.
