Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 69. And those who strive in Our (cause),- We will certainly guide them to Our Paths: For verily Allah is with those who do right. Strive in Our Cause. All that man can do is to strive in Allah’s Cause. As soon as he strives with might and main, with constancy and determination, the Light and Mercy of Allah come to meet him. They cure his defects and shortcomings. They provide him with the means by which he can raise himself above himself. They point out the Way, and all the Paths leading up to it. The Way of Allah (al Sirat al Mustaqim) is a Straight Way . But men have strayed from it in all directions. And there are numerous Paths by which they can get back to the Right Way , the way in which the purity of their own nature, and the Will and Mercy of Allah, require them to walk. All these numerous Paths become open to them once they give their hearts in keeping to Allah and work in right Endeavour (Jihad) with all their mind and soul and resources. Thus will they get out of the Spider’s web of this frail world and attain eternal Bliss in the fulfillment of their true Destiny.

English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Abdullah bin Masud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) used to say: “Allahumma inni as’alukal-huda wat-tuqa wal-`afafa wal-ghina (O Allah! I ask You for guidance, piety, chastity and self-sufficiency)”.
[Muslim Book 37, Chapter 17, Hadith # 6566].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 69 “Allah will surely guide them to his Paths” and Surah Al-Kahf Ayat 17. “He whom Allah guides, is rightly guided;” This Hadith contains four words, the meanings and implications of which constitute its essence. These words are guidance, piety (fear of Allah), chastity and sufficiency. Guidance here means guidance at every turn of life and steadfastness on the path of truth. Fear of Allah is the greatest means of piety and strongest defense against sins. Chastity is the state of being free from what is unlawful. Self-sufficiency is the antonym of poverty and here it means self-contentment. What it implies is that one should not care for what people possess. In view of all these qualities, the prayer of the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) mentioned in this Hadith is very comprehensive and valuable.
