Surah al-Kahf: Text Translation and Modern Commentary

0 out of 5


The miraculous Arabic text of the Qur’ān cannot be translated to any language, hence this book offers explanations of all the verses of the Sūrah, as well as eschatological commentary. No one can possibly study Islamic eschatology without studying this Sūrah of the Qur’ān. How should the poor respond to those who unjustly
acquire the wealth of the world, and then use that wealth to impose their messianic rule over all of mankind from Jerusalem? Sūrah al-Kahf responded with the morale-boosting parable of the rich man and the poor man. The story of the young men of the Cave, from which the Sūrah takes its title, illustrates, according to Muhammad Asad, “the principle of world-abandonment for the sake of faith.” But the story also functions as a morale-booster
since it ends with the triumph of truth (i.e., in the decision to build a Masjid to commemorate the miraculous event). This Sūrah also takes us to Khidr (السلام عليه ,(and hence to the supreme importance of Basar, i.e., internal intuitive spiritual insight, for penetrating reality in Ākhir al-Zamān. The scholar of Islam who can be a guide in Ākhir al-Zamān, must have the scholarship of Majmaul Bahrain which integrates knowledge externally acquired with knowledge internally received. Such a scholar must sit on a rock, rather than on shifting sand, and
hence have a profile of courage and fearlessness. The Sūrah also takes us to Dhūl Qarnain, and to Gog and Magog, and thus to an explanation of the return of the Jews to the Holy Land today.

As the war on Islam intensifies, and as the day approaches when the imposter Euro-Jewish State of Israel would make its bid to become the ruling State in the world, and the false Messiah (i.e., Dajjal) would rule the world from Jerusalem and declare that he is the true Messiah, I fear that there would be many, particularly governments which declare their friendship for USA and hence for Israel, who would want to ban books on the Qur’an.

I therefore pray most humbly, and ask my gentle readers to also kindly join in the prayer, that Allah Most High might protect books (such as this humble quartet of books on Surah al-Kahf) that use the blessed Qur’an to explain, to expose and to challenge those in the godless modern age who are waging wicked war on Islam. Amin.
