The Qur’an is full of parables. Each one, when its meaning is unpacked and understood, offers wisdom and guidance. Surah Kahf, chapter 18 from the Qur’an, is particularly thought provoking, and Muslims are advised to read it at least once a week.


But why? And what can we gain from it?

In this book Yasir Qadhi leads us through Surah Kahf, unfolding the lines, stories and symbols that have inspired people for over a thousand years: the people of the cave, Prophet Musa’s momentous encounter with Khidr, the two men and their gardens, and Gog and Magog.

And surely We have explained matters to people in the Qur’an in diverse ways, using all manners of parables. (Qur’an 18:54)

Through Yasir Qadhi’s unmistakeable voice, modern Muslims may glimpse some of the Qur’an’s profound meaning.

Say: “If the sea were to become ink to record the Words of my Lord, indeed the sea would all be used up before the Words of my Lord are exhausted…” (Qur’an 18:109)

Dr. Yasir Qadhi was born in Houston, TX, where he completed a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering, and then went to pursue Islamic Studies at the University of Madinah. There, he did a BA in Hadith Sciences, and an MA in Islamic Theology. He then completed a PhD in Islamic Studies from Yale University. He is currently the Dean of Academic Affairs of the This Islamic Seminary of America, and resides with his wife and four children in Dallas, TX.

  1. Sarah

    A beautiful tafseer of surah kahf, gives you a deeper meaning of the surah. The language used is very clear and easy to understand. The structure of the book flows in very well as Dr Yasir Qadhi breaks down the surah verse by verse. He highlights key points and wisdoms the average person may have missed. Dr Yasir Qadhi elaborates the importance of seeking knowledge of qualified teachers, of the role of our beloved Nabi SAW, of attributing our blessing to Allah, remembering to do good deeds and ascribing to the oneness of Allah. Surah Kahf is a hidden gem and with this book we can discover the treasure that is going to be a source of goodness in our lives inshallah.
