|Subhanallah, for HE created everything with purpose|
"مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُواْ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ أَوْلِيَآءَ كَمَثَلِ الْعَنكَبُوتِ اتَّخَذَتْ بَيْتاً وَإِنَّ أَوْهَنَ الْبُيُوتِ لَبَيْتُ الْعَنكَبُوتِ لَوْ كَانُواْ يَعْلَمُونَ"
29:41 The parable of those who seek protectors from other than Allah is that of a spider who builds a house; but indeed, the weakest of houses is the spider's house -- if they but knew.
Today, i read His words, Surah Ankaabut and this verse struck me. sometimes, we do not realized it. That we seek for protection other than God. We seek friends, polices, power, prime minister and King. Though in the end these thing might betrayed us.
According to Tafsir Ibnu Kathir, it's explain:
This is how Allah described the idolators in their reverence of gods besides Him, hoping that they would help them and provide for them, and turning to them in times of difficulties. In this regard, they were like the house of a spider, which is so weak and frail, because by clinging to these gods they were like a person who holds on to a spider's web, who does not gain any benefit from that. If they knew this, they would not take any protectors besides Allah. This is unlike the Muslim believer, whose heart is devoted to Allah, yet he still does righteous deeds and follows the Laws of Allah, for he has grasped the most trustworthy handle that will never break because it is so strong and firm.
We muslim, should firmly hold to Allah. No other can protect us except Him. How Palestinian prisoners could stand firm inside the prisoner of hell without wavering, because they knew only Allah can protect them.
If we, believe in Allah truly, even tsunami or nuclear leaking would not made us shake, for if He say He will protect us, He will. Rather than people that seek protection from other than Allah, its just similar as spider's house. How fragile and frail.
Lets hope that, this verse will increase our faith and iman. For those who have knowledge will understand this. As Allah said in next verse:
وَتِلْكَ الاٌّمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ وَمَا يَعْقِلُهَآ إِلاَّ الْعَـلِمُونَ
29:43 And these are the examples We give for mankind; but none will understand them except those who have knowledge (of Allah).
May Allah protect us from evils and bad deeds.amin
