Medical References at the Shadows of Surah al Kahf

‘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

The caring Prophet, and a community so unmoved!

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

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

Moses and Al-Khidr: Model of Resolution

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

One of the stylistic tools used by the Glorious Qur’an to convey its message is narratives (qasas), which can be found in the Qur’an in different forms and for different purposes. The Qur’an relates the stories of the previous nations, stories of the prophets, descriptions of certain events, etc. All in all, the objective is clear: It is a teaching, glad tidings for believers, a reminder, and a warner. So in all the stories of the Qur’an, there is a lesson for people to derive, not just a narration or a mere tale-telling, as Allah says: Continue reading
