As'salamu Alaikum dear brother Abdullah,

Let us look at what the Holy Quran Says:

[029:041]  The parable of those who take protectors other than God is that of the spider, who builds (to itself) a house; but truly the flimsiest of houses is the spider's house;- if they but knew.

‏29:41 مثل الذين اتخذوا من دون الله اولياء كمثل العنكبون اتخذت بيتا وان اوهن البيوت لبيت العنكبوت لو كانوا يعلمون

The Noble Verse isn't talking about spider silk.  It's talking about the spider web being a house; a house that is manually built in stages.  And the Arabic Noble Word is  اوهن , and it doesn't mean weakest, although it wouldn't have any harm in it if this was the meaning.  It means flimsiest or most fragile or most vulnerable, and I believe the Noble Verse here also means that it is the most exposed and least covering house.  It is as if you live in a 100% clear glass houseاوهن here would apply to such a house, because such a house is just too exposed.  And nothing could cover you from Allah Almighty.  This is further supported in the following Noble Verses:

[006:003]  And He is God in the heavens and on earth. He knoweth what ye hide, and what ye reveal, and He knoweth the (recompense) which ye earn (by your deeds).

[037:145]  But We cast him forth on the naked shore in a state of sickness,
[037:146]  And We caused to grow, over him, a spreading plant of the gourd kind.

[068:048]  So wait with patience for the Command of thy Lord, and be not like the Companion of the Fish,- when he cried out in agony.
[068:049]  Had not Grace from his Lord reached him, he would indeed have been cast off on the naked shore, in disgrace.
[068:050]  Thus did his Lord choose him and make him of the Company of the Righteous.


Also, Google Translate has a rich variety of definitions for the Noble Word, اوهن.

Furthermore, a house in Arabia and also throughout the world is parable to:

1-  Protection.
2-  Security.
3-  Safety.
4-  Comfort.
5-  Stability.


Like the Noble Verse Says, there is nothing that could protect you from Allah Almighty, if you choose to be against Him, the Almighty.  Anything that offers you protection is like the strength of a spider web.  You can go right through it and many times you would have no idea that it was even there, nor did you even see it, because it was so invisible and blended in the air that your naked eye couldn't even detect it, nor did your body feel its impact.

So now the ludicrous anti-Islamics tried to twist the Noble Verse and brought in spider silk and steel comparison??  Are not they funny, brother?  And what about their scriptures' scientific miracles?  Do they even have any??  Instead, we find countless scientific blunders.  This is why the clowns are now increasingly attacking Islam under the embrella of atheism.  They're too ashamed of their own scriptures.

29:41 "مثل الذين اتخذوا من دون الله اولياء كمثل العنكبون ((اتخذت)) بيتا وان اوهن البيوت لبيت العنكبوت لو كانوا يعلمون"

god is speaking about female spider in that verse. allah said ((اتخذت)) Feminine formula , not ((اتخذ)) male formula

and also Allah subhanhu wa ta'ala is describing the house of the spider not the thread.
