18. Surah Al Kahf (The Cave) - Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi

Date of publication: 2017-07-09 10:29

It appears from the theme of the Surah that it was revealed at the beginning of the third stage when in spite of persecutions and opposition, migration to Habash had not yet taken place. That is why the story of Ashab-i-Kahf (the Sleepers of the Cave) has been related to comfort and encourage the persecuted Muslims and to show them how the righteous people have been saving their Faith in the past.

While the Quran turned the tables on the questioners who had tried to expose the Holy Prophet, in the end of the Surah the same things have been reiterated that were stated at its beginning: Tauhid and the Hereafter are absolutely true and real and for your own good you should accept these doctrines, mend your ways in accordance with them and live in this world with this conviction that you are accountable to Allah: otherwise you shall ruin your life and all your doings shall be set at naught.
