Surah Al-Kahf (الكهف) is the 18th chapter of the Qur'an. The surah titled in English means “The Cave” and it consists of 110 verses.Surah Al-Kahf contains numerous lessons and guidance for believers. The story of the People of the Cave teaches us about the importance of faith, patience, and reliance on Allah, even in the face of adversity. The story of Prophet Musa and Khidr teaches us about the limits of human knowledge and the wisdom of accepting Allah's decree. The story of Dhul-Qarnayn teaches us about justice, power, and humility.Reciting Surah Kahf is highly rewarded in Islam. According to a hadith (narration) of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), whoever Reads Surah Al-Kahf on Friday will have a light that shines from one Friday to the next. This light will illuminate their path and protect them from the darkness of the world.Reciter: Hazza Al Balushi
Prophet Muhammad destroys all the idols in the Kaaba with Imam Ali's help and washes the images that had been drawn inside.He then introduced Islam to the Meccans, discarding their ideas of nationalism and tribalism, and offered a general amnesty regardless of if they convert to Islam.Prophet Muhammad told Bilal to climb on top of the Kaaba to give the Azaan. Ikrima bin Abu Jahl saw that and made disparraging remarks about it, with a couple other pagans agreeing. They were soon shokced when Prophet Muhammad came over and said "I know what you said about Bilal" and repeated their words verbatim, revealing his miraculous knowledge.The Prophet stayed in Mecca for 19 more days and during that time many prominent Meccans who had initially resisted conversion would end up converting instead of fleeing, including Ikrimah bin Abu Jahl, Suhayl ibn Amr, and Safwan ibn Umayyah.Lecture notes available at http://www.why-quran.org/?p=691.Subscribe at http://www.why-quran.org/subscribe to watch the lectures live and participate in the Q&A at the end of each class.Video recording of this lecture + Q&A available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_2pklaBlHA&list=PLpkB0iwLgfTat-Pgh4W3WFmupPamiC9UT.

Prophet Muhammad had promised safety to any Meccan who either remined in their own home during the invasion or went to Abu Sufyan's home.After seeing the Muslim's strenght, Abu Sufyan saw the futility of struggle and urged the Meccans to surrender. Some Meccans remained defiant, notably his wife Hind and Ikrimah, the son of Abu Jahl.After taking over Mecca, Prophet Muhammad granted general amnesty to all Meccans save for about a dozen who had been the most defiant.The Prophet then went to the Ka'bah and destroyed all the idols there.Lecture notes available at http://www.why-quran.org/?p=687.Subscribe at http://www.why-quran.org/subscribe to watch the lectures live and participate in the Q&A at the end of each class.Video recording of this lecture + Q&A available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUkFpvzwUA4&list=PLpkB0iwLgfTat-Pgh4W3WFmupPamiC9UT.
In this episode, we explore the enduring role of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in the lives of Muslims. Joined by Ustaz Sufyan, we share personal insights and discuss ways to strengthen one's love for the Prophet, emphasizing the importance of emulating his character and actions. We also delve into practical ways to express this love through following his Sunnah and spreading kindness in our communities.

In this episode, we explore the exceptional character of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, delving into his qualities, his treatment of others, and his response to hardship. Along with Ustaz Sufyan, we contemplate whether, as imperfect Muslims, we can emulate his noble character by incorporating his teachings into our lives. Join us for an inspiring discussion on the timeless lessons we can draw from the Prophet's exemplary conduct.
As any observer of the Islamic world—or regular listener to Akbar's Chamber—will know, there are a dizzying variety of different forms of Islam. Yet every Muslim who follows one of these different versions believes it represents the true version of the faith. This begs the question of who gets to decide what is, and isn't, Islam? In other words, who has the religious authority to define Islam? In this episode, we explore the social, historical, and doctrinal dimensions of religious authority through the lenses of anthropology. Step by step, we unpack the key components of religious authority, from revered historic founder figures to their living representatives, along with the crucial components of respected texts and institutions that range from mosques and mystical orders to political parties and states. While looking at Islam from the analytical outside of the social sciences, we also examine how this approach relates to two foundational Islamic concepts: the Sunna (or Model of the Prophet Muhammad) and the Jama‘a (or Muslim Community). Nile Green talks to Ismail Fajrie Alatas, author of What is Religious Authority? Cultivating Islamic Communities in Indonesia (Princeton University Press, 2021).
Prophet Muhammad kept the attack on Mecca a closely guarded secret. However Hatib ibn Abi Balta'ah sent a letter to the Quraysh warning them of the attack. The Prophet was informed of this by revelation and he sent Ali and Zubayr to retrieve it.The Muslim army eventually marched to Mecca, where they were instructed to spread out and display their numbers. Under the cover of night, Abu Sufyan and two other senior leaders of Quraysh were brought to the Prophet to surrender and were granted amnesty.Lecture notes available at http://www.why-quran.org/?p=678.Subscribe at http://www.why-quran.org/subscribe to watch the lectures live and participate in the Q&A at the end of each class.Video recording of this lecture + Q&A available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBYrR05Xgug&list=PLpkB0iwLgfTat-Pgh4W3WFmupPamiC9UT.

The attack on Israel by Hamas terrorists was 9/11 and the Holocaust rolled into one! But, it portends even worse….Ever since Hamas, unquestionably a terrorist organization, attacked Israel on October 7, 2023 in the most barbaric ways possible, the world has been thrown into chaos. We are still reeling from the images of beheaded babies, rapes, kidnapping of grannies and so much more. But, in addition to revealing the inhumanity of terrorists, it revealed the ignorance of the West. The inconvenient truth is that terrorists have been taught since they were toddlers to hate Israel and the Jews. The unspeakable images of hate are simply years of rage finally expressing itself. Does 'Today Israel, Tomorrow the World!' have a familiar ring? That's because it mirrors what Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf, referring to 'Today, Germany, Tomorrow the World'. It also mirrors a song from the Hitler Youth Songbook, “We shall keep marching on… For today Germany belongs to us, And tomorrow the whole world." Not coincidentally, ‘Mein Kampf' and ‘Jihad' both mean 'struggle'. Hitler's antisemitism came from his thinking that Jews were plotting to control the world, when he was actually projecting his own ambitions onto the Jews. This describes what's in the minds of terrorists, as well. You will hear highlights of the drumbeats around the worldsince the Hamas invasion, including the Obama/Biden White House barbecue held the day after - just like terrorists celebrated after 9/11. You will hear what the Hamas Chief said about Israel being only their first target and his quoting of the Prophet Muhammad to clarify that they won't stop until the entire planet is under the rule of Islam, on behalf of Allah. It's not just about Israel. We are ALL Israel and sitting on a powder keg….
The Treaty of Hudaybiyya had included a vow of there being no fighting between the Quraysh and the Muslims. However, when the tribe of Banu Bakr asked the leaders of Quraysh for help in a raid against their long time foe Banu Khuza'ah, a tribe with many Muslims and who were longtime allies of Prophet Muhammad, the Quraysh joined in.The raiders killed 23 members of Banu Khuza'ah. The tribe went to Prophet Muhammad for help and the Prophet pledged to attack Mecca in resopnse. Meanwhile Abu Sufyan learned about the raid and panicked realzing that it meant the Quraysh had violated the treaty. He went to Medina, to try to apologize. The same Abu Sufyan who used to be relentless in persecuting the Muslims was now begging for protection.But the deaths and the violated treaty could not be taken back.Lecture notes available at http://www.why-quran.org/?p=673.Subscribe at http://www.why-quran.org/subscribe to watch the lectures live and participate in the Q&A at the end of each class.Video recording of this lecture + Q&A available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2eC8R4WoTQ&list=PLpkB0iwLgfTat-Pgh4W3WFmupPamiC9UT.
A suspected suicide bomb blast during a procession to commemorate the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad has left more than 50 people dead and many more wounded in Pakistan's Balochistan province. There's been growing instability in Pakistan caused by ISIS and the Pakistani Taliban. And, the Peace Corps started out as way for idealistic young people to do good and change the world. But with countries producing their own college graduates and even poor farmers connected by cellphones, is it still relevant? Also, Europe's rewilding efforts are seeing spectacular successes in Spain, where wild horses run free and vultures are once again circling the remote canyons of one of Europe's least populated areas. Plus, from village to village, a Kurdish musician records old folk songs to preserve a generation.
