Surah Al-Ankabut Ayat 06 Daily Qur’an & Hadith (13 June 2023)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[29].Surah Al-Ankabut [The Spider]

Ayat 6. And whosoever strives, he strives only for himself. Verily, Allah is free of all wants from the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns, and all that exists).

Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 6. And if any strive (with might and main), they do so for their own souls: for Allah is free of all needs from all creation. All our striving ensures to our own spiritual benefit. When we speak of serving Allah, it is not that we confer any benefit on Him. For He has no needs, and is independent of all His Creation. In conforming to His Will, we are seeking our own good, as in yielding to evil we are doing harm to ourselves.

English Translation of Hadith 

Hazrat Abu Dharr (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) said, “Allah, the Exalted, and Glorious, said; ‘O My slaves, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and jinn of you to be as pious as the most pious heart of any man of you, that would not increase My domain a thing. O My slaves, were the first of you, and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any man of you, that would not decrease My domain in a thing.”.

[Muslim Book 032, Chapter 13, Hadith # 6246].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 06. “Allah is free of all wants from the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinn’s, and all that exists)” This Hadith mentions the Power and Majesty of Allah and stresses that one should supplicate Allah for everything that one needs. From guidance to sustenance, the treasures of everything are with Him – the treasures which are unlimited and any withdrawal from them does not make any reduction in them. Similar is the case of His Sovereignty; it is not affected even if the whole universe supports or opposes them. Thus, it is in the interest of man that he should dedicate himself entirely to Allah and beg all his needs from Him and Him Alone.
