English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah Al-Ankabut [The Spider]
Ayat 6. And whosoever strives, he strives only for himself. Verily, Allah is free of all wants from the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns, and all that exists).
Tafseer of Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider) Ayat 6. And if any strive (with might and main), they do so for their own souls: for Allah is free of all needs from all creation. All our striving ensures to our own spiritual benefit. When we speak of serving Allah, it is not that we confer any benefit on Him. For He has no needs, and is independent of all His Creation. In conforming to His Will, we are seeking our own good, as in yielding to evil we are doing harm to ourselves.
