It is the word of God Almighty revealed to His Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him; To guide people and to get them out of misguidance and ignorance, the Qur’an contains 114 surahs, some of these surahs are Meccan, and some are Madani, and each surah of this surah has wisdom and a lesson from its revelation, and here in this article we will talk about the reason for naming Surat al-Ankabut.

Surah Al-Ankabut

Surat Al-Ankabut is a Meccan surah, its verses are sixty-nine, and it takes the twenty-ninth order among the surahs of the Noble Qur’an, and was revealed after Surat Al-Room.

reason of calling

سميت سورة العنكبوت لورود اسم العنكبوت فيها، حيث ضرب الله سبحانه وتعالى مثلاً للآلهة المزعومة بالعنكبوب والأصنام المنحوتة، قال تعالى: (مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ كَمَثَلِ الْعَنْكَبُوتِ اتَّخَذَتْ بَيْتًا وَإِنَّ أَوْهَنَ الْبُيُوتِ لَبَيْتُ الْعَنْكَبُوتِ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ) [العنكبوت: 46].

The focus of the topics of the surah

Surat Al-Ankabut deals with talking about major faith topics such as: Oneness, retribution, resurrection, and the message. This is because the Muslims in Makkah were in the most severe forms of distress and torment, and for this reason the discussion on the subject of affliction and sedition came in a detailed and lengthy manner, especially when mentioning the stories of the prophets.

Reasons for the revelation of the surah

  • The second verse: (People thought that they would be left behind that they would say, “We are safe” and they will not be tested.” This verse was revealed about people in Mecca who affirmed Islam, so the companions of the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, wrote to them in Medina that God, the Mighty and Sublime, emigrated to Medina. And the polytheists harmed and humiliated them, so this noble verse was revealed.
  • الآية الثامنة: (وَوَصَّيْنَا الإِنسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حُسْنًا وَإِن جَاهَدَاكَ لِتُشْرِكَ بِي مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ فَلا تُطِعْهُمَا إِلَيَّ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ)، نزلت هذه الآية عندما قال سعد ابن وقاص أنا كنت رجلاً باراً بأمي فلما أسلمت، قالت: يا سعد ما هذا الدين I have created, to abandon this religion of yours, or I will not drink or eat until I die, then you will reproach me, so it will be said, O killer of his mother, then he said to his mother, Do not do this, O mother, I will not abandon this religion for any reason. He tired her, so he said to her, by God, “O my mother, if you had a hundred souls and went out, soul by soul, I would not leave this religion for anything.
