Lessons and Secrets of Surah Al Kahf (The Cave)

Sūrah Al Kahf (The Cave) , the 18th chapter in Juz 15-16, is one of the most important chapters of the Qur'an for it contains four stories from the bygone days from which one can draw many relevant lessons to strengthen one's faith and beliefs. The importance of this chapter can be attributed to a saying of The Prophet ﷺ who once said:
“One who memorized the first ten verses of Surah al Kahf will be secure against the Dajjal (Anti-Christ).” (Muslim)

Due to its importance, it is attributed to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ that Surah Al-Kahf should be read after the Friday / Jumu’ah prayers, for whosoever recites this surah on Friday, he/she is saved from all calamities till next Friday. 

The four stories mentioned in the surah in fact point towards four important  lessons or guidelines from which the men of faith can draw their strength. These stories are:

  • The Story of the people of the cave – A Trial of Faith
  • The Story of the man who owns two gardens – A Trial of Wealth
  • The Story of Musa and Al-Khidr – A Trail of Knowledge
  • The Story of the Dhul Qarnayn (A Righteous King) – A Trial of Power
We have already posted a detailed exegesis of the Surah Al Kahf in four parts. The purpose of this part is to exclusively concentrate on the lessons and secrets of the surah.

You may now like to listen to  eminent Muslim scholar Nouman Ali Khan, who in his lecture explains the secrets and the lessons one can draw from this surah:

Please refer to our Reference Page "114 Chapters (Sūrahs) of the Holy Qur'an" for translation, explanation and exegesis of all other chapters of the Qur'an. You may also refer to our Reference Pages for knowing more about Islam and Quran.
Reading the Holy Quran should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. An effort has been made to gather explanation / exegesis of the surahs of the Holy Qur'an from authentic sources and then present a least possible condensed explanation of the surah.
