Surah al-Kahf (chapter of the Cave) comes exactly midway through the Qur'an, and covers four historical events and two parables. As many ahadith encourage the memorization and recitation of this surah, either in whole or part on Fridays as protection against Dajjal (the Anti-Christ), it is essential to understand this surah and to implemement the antidote provided therein. It includes a brief note on the phenomenon of Dajjal based on authentic ahadith.
Based on a seminar paper presented by Khurram Murad in the 1980's, this concise presentation clarifies the dynamic ideas portrayed in the majestic Qur'an through an examination of Surah al-kahf. Abdur Rashid Siddiqui has edited the text and completed those sections that were not in the original paper. The authors have concentrated on the message that the Qur'an expounds from various episodes narrated in this surah.
