1. Today is Friday, or Jumuah. It is a day which is very special for us Muslims and it is on this day that we are encouraged to recite and learn (take lessons) from Surah Al-Kahf, the 18th surah of the Quran.
2. So as an introduction, let us see the following diagram about the virtues of Surah Al-Kahf as reported in ahadith.
3. As it is in Malay Language, let me try to translate it for you (in English).
4. Basically the subject (in yellow ribbon background) reads "The Importance of Surah Al-Kahf."
5. It has 2 ahadith below it. Let me use my own words to convey the message to you.
6. The first hadith basically says, "From Abu Al-Darda', our Messenger Nabi SAW says, whomever memorizes the first 10 verses (ayat) of Surah Al-Kahf, he is guaranteed protection from Dajjal the AntiChrist." (As narrated by Muslim No. 809)
7. The second one, it basically says, "From Ali RH, he reported from Rasulullah SAW that he SAW says, whomever recites Surah Al-Kahf on Friday (Jumuah), he will be protected for 8 days from the trials and tribulations (fitnah) of this world, and even if Dajjal the AntiChrist appears, he (that recites Al-Kahf) will be protected." (Al-Dhurr Al-Manthur from Al-Suyuti 5:355)
8. Next, what you will see is a series of slides which I have captured from the net so that it is easier for you guys to read.
9. It is awesome and very useful because it breaks down the secrets of Surah Al-Kahf (as the title reads below) in a very beautiful and easy-to-understand manner. I hope it is helpful and for those who want to have a copy which you can read even when you are offline (or if the slides below are too small but you need larger images to read, (alhamdulillah) I have prepared a powerpoint presentation for you to download for free.
10. You can find the link to download from my archive page here.
11. I hope you'll benefit from this small benefit and please do share it around. Wallahuaklam and please do take care.
Wassalamu 'alaykum wbt.
