‘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
Of the Beautiful Names and Attributes of Allah are al Wāhid and al Ahad, both having the same meaning and yet they are distinctly distinguishable. Subhanallah!

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
“How To Be A Productive Muslim: Treasures of Wisdom From the Story of Prophet Moosa and Khidr”. I found this post to be beneficial, so sharing here. 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
There is a great deal of similarity and difference in the Inshaa’Allahs uttered by two great Prophets of Allah, Prophet Moosa and Prophet Ismaeel (May Allah’s peace and mercy be upon them)
Through their stories, let us try to learn a basic fact that nothing in the world can happen without the permission and will of Allah, Inshaa’Allah…..
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.
As Friday and Surah al Kahf are intimately connected, I am presenting a simple but meaningful presentation on this lesson-rich Surah.
May Allah bless the one who made this presentation. Continue reading
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
We have discussed in Qur’an Central that everything related to the Qur’an becomes great. While reading Surah al Israa and Surah al Kahf, I noticed more than one connection. The reward for following the Qur’anic guidance is mentioned immediately after mentioning the purpose of Qur’an’s revelation. Actually I was looking for these mutashabih aayaat, similar verses. Continue reading
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
