Echoes from the Cave

Understanding Surah Al-Kahf

Allah begins this surah by relating to us the story of the People of the Cave. These are youth who realize that if they wanted to follow  Allah's guidance, they would have to isolate themselves from the disbelievers & their environment. 

The next story of the two men and the gardens demonstrates how the actions of believers lead to happiness while the actions of those who disbelieve lead to disappointment and failure. 

The 3rd story is of Musa and al-Khiḍr.  Here, Allah teaches us numerous lessons on how His decree protects the interests of the righteous. 

Lastly is the story of Dhu al-Qarnayn, where we see, once again, how Divine guidance is upheld, this time by a person of power. 

These 4 sections of Sura AlKahf are life changing. The student can expect a detailed discussion related to the Day of Judgment, Paradise and Hell, Decree of Allah, and much more. This course will also clarify a lot of the confusions that surround these topics and other areas of belief and creed.
