Ever Wondered why our Master Prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alaihi wasallam has
instructed us to Read Surah Kahf every Friday??
Surah Kahf has 4 main stories in it let us see them and observe what they’re saying to us:
1) THE PEOPLE OF THE CAVE:
In a Nation of Disbelievers some men become Muslims and escape away from the Nation and Hide in a Cave, Allah makes them to sleep for several Hundred years and when they wake up they find their nation changed into
MORAL: TRAIL OF FAITH
2) A MAN OF 2 GARDENS:
Allah blessed a man with two beautiful gardens and he use to make profit from its fruits, but he forgot to thank Allah and even went to an Extent that he started doubting the existence of Afterlife i.e Aakhirah so his Gardens was destroyed, the man regretted but it was too late
MORAL: TRAIL OF WEALTH
3) THE MEETING BETWEEN MUSA ALAIHISSALAAM AND KHIZR ALAIHISSALAAM
Once the Followers of Musa Alaihisalaam Asked him who is the Most Knowledgeable man on this Earth?? Musa Alaihissalaam replied them ”its me” so
Allah said Musa Alaihissalaam that there’s a Man in a far away land who’s far more Knowledgeable than Musa Alaihissalaam claimed so Musa Alaihissalaam travels many nights to that land and meets the man and lerans how divine wisdoms can sometimes be Hidden in things which we percieve as bad
MORAL: TRAIL OF KNOWLEDGE
4) ZUL QARNAIN :
its a story of an Allah-fearing King who was blessed with Knowledge and power, Had a Vast Kingdom and he use to be in constant travel to Help his People and also to spread the Word of Allah,he overcame the resistance of Yajuj-Majuj and made a huge wall and helped the people of
that land overcome trouble.
MORAL:TRAIL OF POWER
In the Middle of this Surah,Allah mentions About Iblees,Allah says that such Trails are stirred by Iblees.
Iblees ”Shaitaan” tricks our hearts in the trail of Faith,wealth,knowledge and power,”we (Allah) said to them (Angels) bow to Adam(alaihissalaam)everyone bowed except Iblees”! He was a jinn, and Enemy of every human being since the advent or evolution of Human beings from the time of Adam Alaihissalaam
MORAL: be careful of such trails, its a test from Allah of our Faith,Wealth,knowledge and Power.
May Allah guide us in the right path and save us from the tempts of Shaitaan Aameen. Allah says in Quran that Iblees is ”An avowed enemy” of human beings, shaitaan has promised Allah that he’ll lead all humans into the path of evil and allah also says” not to be friends with the shaitaan” may allah bless our faith (imaan) such that it gets so hardened like Hazrath Umar radhiyallahu anhu That shaitaan fears and runs far away from us Aameen.
So friends,that’s the importance of Surah Al Kahf, such Tests appear in our daily Lives, we should always and always choose the path of Allah which will last forever.
