Surah al-Kahf was revealed in Makkah and contains 110 ayahs. This Surah emphasizes the transient nature of the worldly life through real-life parables and stories. These stories and parables also serve to advise, guide and teach us different lessons on life. For example:

- The story of the people of the cave addresses steadfastness and holding strong to the truth and how unseen help arrives from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala on such occasions.

- The story of Musa alaihissalam and Khiðr highlights the wisdom of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and the unseen realities that lie behind the apparent and corporeal world.

- The story of Dhul al-Qurnain addresses the matter of the vicegerency of the people of iman and the utter futility of the disbelievers.

 It’s Virtues:

The Blessed Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam exhorted his Ummah to recite Surah al-Kahf every Friday that it saves one from the fitnas of Dajjal. Imam Qurøubi rahmatullah alaih and ibn Mardawai rahmatullah alaih also narrate that whoever recites Surah al-Kahf will be blessed with a special light on the Day of Judgment. The narration of Imam Qurøubi rahmatullah alaih adds that ten days of sin are wiped out for one who recites Surah al-Kahf.
