Lessons from Surah Kahaf

21 Jan

نَّحْنُ نَقُصُّ عَلَيْكَ نَبَأَهُم بِالْحَقِّ ۚ إِنَّهُمْ فِتْيَةٌ آمَنُوا بِرَبِّهِمْ وَزِدْنَاهُمْ هُدًى

It is We who relate to you, their story in truth. Indeed, they were youths who believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance. [18:13]

  • Without any centres for higher learning, how did Prophet SAW know this story? Additionally, the Arabs denied resurrection and the story of the sleeping-and-awakening of the People of the Cave after 300 proved how Allah will resurrect us– exactly as we sleep.
  • Qurtubi RA (d671) says, “Allah is relating to us the true story due to the disagreement amongst the people.” SubhanAllah, this disagreement continues today; google seven sleepers.
  • This ayah contains a promise from Allah: whoever believes in Him and obeys Him, Allah will increase them in guidance [Shinqiti].

Jundub RA said, “If a calamity befalls you, put forward your wealth to protect your religion, and if the calamity continues, put forward your life to save your religion, for the ruined is he whose religion is ruined, and the looted is he whose religion is taken. And know that there is no poverty after Paradise, and no riches after the Fire.”
