In Surah al Kahf, Allah subhanahu wa Ta’aala mentions two groups of people with two contrasting attitudes emerging from two types of hearts. Subhanallaah. Continue reading
‘The Medical Miracles of the Qur’an’ is a resourceful book authored by Dr. Sharif Kaf al Ghazal, and published by The Islamic Foundation, Leicester.
I am sharing a beautiful description about sleep, hearing and related points. The author discusses about the medical aspects from the story of the Ashaab al Kahf, the Sleepers of the Cave, from the amazing Surah al Kahf.
Read, enjoy and glorify Allah for revealing the glorious Qur’an for the welfare of mankind. Continue reading
When someone you are deeply attached to departs, you feel sad, lonely, and dejected.
When Ramadhaan leaves us, we feel abandoned.
When you have to wind up your Umrah/Hajj journey and you know that this is your last sight of Ka’bah, your spiritual heart bleeds.
The absence of permanence in different facets of our life is the common factor for all our heartbreaks. Continue reading
Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah.
I have organised all posts on Surah al Kahf, published in this blog till date, in one page here so that it is convenient for my blog readers, alhamdulillaah to explore on different aspects of this beautiful Surah that is often recited by the global Muslim Ummah especially on Fridays. Continue reading

Every Friday, for more than one thousand four hundred years, it has been the practice of thousands of Muslims the world over to recite the Surah al Kahf.
This Surah, like other suwar of the Qur’an, has in its fold an ocean depth of meanings that gives Muslims a purpose to live, a sense of direction.
Today I would like to highlight an important aspect about the personality of the glorious Prophet, Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, which this amazing Surah brings into limelight.
This aspect of our Prophet’s personality is often ignored by most of the Muslims in the world. Those who talk a lot about the fiqhi or jurisprudential aspects of religious matters seldom get time even to ponder over this aspect of the Messenger of Allah.
Hardly we find Muslims in the world today observing this sunnah.
Even if we adopt one percent of what our Benefactor use to feel, we would be doing a great service to our own selves in our day to day life. And those who have dedicated their life – such fortunate ones are unfortunately less in the world – to care and share the treasure of Islam to humanity, are really worthy of being called true followers of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam. May Allah make us one among those fortunate few. Aameen.
Well, what is that thing that was in the person of the Prophet which is badly lacking in most of us? Continue reading
Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.
Whenever I Enter this Cave, I Come Out with Treasure. Subhanallah.
Surah al Kahf consists of many Verbs of Movement, Striving and Endeavor – أفعال الحركة والسعى
This Surah for sure calls for harakah on the part of Muslims.
Life must be dynamic, not static.
Active, not passive. Energetic, not lethargic.
This Surah starts by giving glad tidings to the Believers Who Do Righteous Deeds that they will have a good reward وَيُبَشِّرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ الَّذِينَ يَعْمَلُونَ الصَّالِحَاتِ and ends with the Command: Do Righteous deeds فَلْيَعْمَلْ عَمَلًا صَالِحًا Continue reading
Surah al Kahf is an encyclopedia in itself! Subhanallaah!
As we read and understand the Surah, we come across four different aspects of Dawah.
Dawah is to call people to Islam, to advise people about what is Right and what is wrong, to remind those who have forgotten their duties and to stand up against injustice and oppression. Continue reading
Dear brothers and sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.

The story of Ya’juuj and Ma’juuj (Gog and Magog) in Surah al Kahf is not only interesting but it also has many lessons for us.
Many Muslims read Surah al Kahf on Fridays, and blessed are those who try to understand and ponder over its teachings.
I came across an interesting Question and Answer on Gog and Magog, and would like to re-post here for the benefit of all readers. Continue reading
