Ever wondered why Prophet Muhammad (salallahu alaihe wassalam) asked us to recite Surat Al-Kahf every Friday?
Let’s ﬁnd out today in sha Allah…
‘Whoever reads Surah al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, a light will shine for him from beneath his feet to the clouds of
the sky, which will shine for him on the Day of Resurrection,
and he will be forgiven (his sins) between the two Fridays.’
-Hadith(al-Targ heeb wa’l-Tarheeb,1/ 298)
Four lessons from Surah Al-Kahf.
1)Trial of Faith (people of the cave,Ashabul Kahfi)
2)Trial of Wealth (stories of 2 men and the 2 gardens)
3)Trial of Knowledge(Prophet Musa & al-khidr)
4)Trial of Power (Zulqarnai n with Ya’jujMa’juj)
In the middle of these 4 stories in surah al-kahf, IBLIS is the one who stirs these trials —–(Q18:50)
*So how do we survive these trials?
(solutions can be found in surah al-kahf too)
2)Calling to Allah(Q18:27)
3)Remembering the Hereafter (Q18:47 -49)
5)Knowing the truth abt this world(Q18:45)
