VERSE OF THE DAY: A SPIDER'S DWELLING

Bismillahi Ar rahmaan arraheem:

"The parable of those who choose protectors other than God is that of a spider who builds for herself a dwelling; but surely the weakest of all dwellings is (that) of a spider, if they but knew."

The Holy Quran, 29:41

assalamu alaikum sister, masha' Allah.. such an inspirational quote,
if you allow me to add one more point that shows a fraction of the greatness of Quran and the vastness of Allah's knowledge.
 
let start by pointing out that in the Arabic language there is NO "IT" pronoun. even inanimate objects or animals are referred to with using He or she ( animate male/female pronouns)
 
let me also point out that a 'spider' is always referred to in the masculine. (male pronoun). (HE) in the Arabic language.
 so why did Allah (subhanahu wa ta'aala _the exalted) use the feminine pronoun in referring to the spider in this verse?  recent studies show that the spider that makes the web IS in fact the female spider. not the male, masha' Allah , a scientific fact proved in modern times, was referred to over 1400 years ago in our Quran. praise be it to Allah, thank you muslimah4life, for an inspiring verse and for allowing me to share this with you.. love and salaam
