Surah al Kahf is an action-packed Surah!

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

‘What sort of book is this?!!’

Friday and Surah al Kahf is synonymous with the reciters of the Qur’an.

What makes some of us to take a pause when we come across this ayah in Surah al Kahf?

The Qur’anic words are so effective that they take the readers on a virtual tour giving them the experience of visualizing the scene depicted as if it were to happen in front of one’s very eyes!  Continue reading

As i was proceeding, i got slow in recitation because my mind was wonder struck at the word ‘Rahmah’ being frequently used in this Surah. Then i paused for a while and thought may be this is yet another miracle of this Surah. A thought came to my mind that Rahmah could even be the theme of this Surah. Continue reading
