Surat Al-`Ankabūt (The Spider) – سورة العنكبوت
وَكَأَيِّن مِّن دَابَّةٍ لَّا تَحْمِلُ رِزْقَهَا اللَّهُ يَرْزُقُهَا وَإِيَّاكُمْ ۚ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ
“And so many a moving creature carries not its own provision! Allah provides for it and for you. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.“ | QS 29:60
Interpretation of the meaning (Tafsir Ibn Kathir):
The Promise of Riz’q (Provision)
“And so many a moving creature carries not its own provision!” — meaning, it does not have the ability to gather its provision and save it for tomorrow.
“Allah provides for it and for you.” — means, Allah allots its provision to it even though it is weak, and makes it easy for it.
He sends provision to every creature in the appropriate manner, even the ants in the depths of the earth, the birds in the air and the fish in the sea.
“And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.” — means, He hears all that His servants say and He knows their every movements.
In another ayyah The Almighty says:
Surat Hūd (Hud) – سورة هود
وَمَا مِن دَابَّةٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ إِلَّا عَلَى اللَّهِ رِزْقُهَا وَيَعْلَمُ مُسْتَقَرَّهَا وَمُسْتَوْدَعَهَا ۚ كُلٌّ فِي كِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ
And there is no creature on earth but that upon Allah is its provision, and He knows its place of dwelling and place of storage. All is in a clear register. | QS 11:6
Now, let’s go out there and make some — let’s hear it for the day folks, Bismillah!
