‫بسم ال الرحمن الرحيم‬

The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whoever recited Soorat AlKahf in the same manner in which it was revealed, it will serve for him as a light on the Day of Judgment, from his domicile to Makkah. And whoever recited the last ten verses, and it happens that the Dajjaal should appear after that, Dajjaal will not be empowered over him.” Al-Haakim 1/564 & Adh-Dhahabee

Abu Ad-Dardaa reported that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Anyone who memorizes ten aayahs from the beginning of Soorat Al-Kahf will be protected from the Dajjaal.” Muslim, Riyaad As-Saaliheen by Imaam An-Nawawee 183 #1012 One narration says, “from the end of Soorat Al-Kahf”.

Soorat Al-Kahf= 4 stories

The People of the Cave
The story of the believing young men who were living in a disbelieving country. They decided to leave their homes and run away with their religion after a confrontation between them and their .people Allaah rewarded them with the mercy of the cave and care of the sun + They woke up to find their village were all believers

The Owner of the Two Gardens
The story of the man who Allaah had blessed, but he forgot the One who had blessed him, transgressed and had doubts in his faith. He didn’t give thanks for the blessings, even though .his friend reminded him

Moosaa & Khidr
In approximately the middle of the Soorah comes the story of Iblees - the one who pulls the strings of .fitnah
When Moosaa was asked, “Who is the most knowledgeable person in the earth? He said, “Me” Then Allaah revealed to him that there was someone more .knowledgeable than him Moosaa traveled to meet him in order to learn from him how sometimes we do not understand Allaah’s Wisdom but He is invariably Wise (i.e. – the (ship, the boy, the wall

Dhul Qarnayn

?What is the relationship of Soorat Al-Kahf to the Dajjaal
:The Dajjaal will appear prior to the Day of Judgment with 4 trials • He will ask people to worship him instead of Allaah • He will order the sky to rain, and he will tempt people with his wealth. • He will try people with knowledge due to what he reveals to people of news • He will control major parts of the Earth

The Boats of Success
:Good Companionship
And keep yourself (O Muhammad) patiently with those who call on their Lord (i.e. your companions who remember their Lord with glorification, praising in prayers, etc., and other righteous deeds, etc.) morning and afternoon, seeking His Face, and let not your eyes overlook them, desiring the pomp and glitter of the life of the world; and obey not him whose heart We have made heedless of Our Remembrance, one who follows his own lusts and whose affair (deeds) has been lost. Soorat Al-Kahf, aayah 28

:Knowing the Realities of Life
And put forward to them the example of the life of this world, it is like the water (rain) which We send down from the sky, and the vegetation of the earth mingles with it, and becomes fresh and green. But (later) it becomes dry and broken pieces, which the winds scatter. And Alaah is Able to do everything. Soorat Al-Kahf, aayah 45

The Boats of Success
Humility
He (Moses) said: "If Allaah will, you will find me patient, and I will not disobey you in aught.“
Soorat Al-Kahf, aayah 69

Sincerity
Say (O Muhammad): "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Ilaah (God) is One Ilaah. So whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.“
Soorat Al-Kahf, aayah 110

“‫“ اللهم نجنا من الفتن ما ظهر منها وما بطن‬
Oh Allaah, save me from the trials, that which is obvious and that which is hidden”

. . . Finally
Did you understand the secret of reading Soorat AlKahf every Friday? Did you realize it’s place in helping us understand the trials of this life, and the way to be saved from them? Do you now know its great importance for us in guarding us from the Dajjaal? So . . .there is no room for negligence in reading it every Friday, and of course following its commands afterwards.

Spread the word, as the one who guides to goodness is like one who does it
