No. 29 (Revealed at Mecca)
69 Verses in 7 Sections
The Feature of Sura:
This Sura was revealed in Mecca and contains sixty nine verses. The names of
some of Suras such as Al-Baqarah Al-Fīl, An-Naml, and An-Nahl, have been taken
from the names of the animals which are mentioned somehow in these verses.
In verse No. 41 of this Sura, the construction of Polytheism is counted the
frailest building like the house of spider and, thus, this Sura has been
nominated as Sura ‘Ankabūt.
This Sura speaks about a few subjects, such as: Faith, the man’s duty, the
Divine trial, the history of some prophets, prohibition of unfair disputes, and
relying on other than Allah.
The Virtue of Sura ‘Ankabūt:
Majma‘-ul-Bayān narrates a noble tradition from the holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.)
who said: “Whoever recites Sura ‘Ankabūt will have ten good rewards as the
number of all believers and hypocrites.”
