SURAH 18: SURAH KAHAF
THE CAVE

A SUMMARY OF THE SURAH

To ascertain whether Rasulullaah (SAW) was a true Nabi, the Kuffaar posed three questions to him. The three questions were:

What happened to the youngsters that went missing in times bygone (referring to the people of the cave)? This question is answered from verse 9 to verse 26 of Surah Kahf.
Tell us about the person in bygone times who travelled to the east and the west (referring to Dhul Qarnayn)? This question is answered from verse 83 to verse 98 of Surah Kahf.
What is the reality of the soul? This question is answered in verse 85 of Surah Bani Israa’eel

The detailed story of Moosa (AS) and Khidr is also mentioned in this Surah, highlighting the fact that only Allaah has knowledge of the unseen and that only He is in control of affairs in the universe. The story is mentioned from verse 60 to verse 82 of the Surah.

SURAH 19: SURAH MARYAM
MARYAM (RA)

A SUMMARY OF THE SURAH

Surah Maryam refutes several incorrect beliefs of the Kuffaar. Among these are the following:

Some Jews believed that Zakariyya (AS) had control over the affairs of the universe because he managed to father a son in extreme old age.
Some Christians believed that Maryam (RA) was superhuman because she used to receive fruit that was not in season.
Another incorrect belief that some Jews, Christians, and Mushrikeen entertained was that Ibraheem (AS) could alleviate their difficulties.
Allaah also speaks of three other Ambiyaa e whom some people regarded as deities, viz. Moosa e, Ismaa’eel e and Idrees (AS).
Some people called the angels Allaah’s daughters and deputies.

SURAH 20: SURAH TAAHAA
TAAHAA

A SUMMARY OF THE SURAH

Surah TaaHaa contains two central themes, viz.
(1) Towheed,
2) encouragement for Muslims to brave the difficulties that will come their way when they preach Towheed.

Within the theme of Towheed, the Surah emphasises the fact that only Allaah has knowledge of the unseen and that only He can be relied on for assistance.

To kindle the spirit of courage and sacrifice in people so that they may brave the difficulties that will come to a person who propagates Towheed, the story of Moosa e is mentioned in great detail. The story emphasises the resolve and zeal with which a person should propagate Towheed.
