The Quran, the primary sacred scripture of Islam, has chapter number 18 called Surah Kahf. It is also known as “The Cave” due to the story of the “Companions of the Cave” (Ashab al-Kahf) mentioned in the surah.
You may get the whole Surah Kahf PDF, which is released by Maktaba Tul Madinah, online. Readers who download and save files to their devices can also recite Surah Kahf online in PDF format.
Muslims frequently recite Surah Kahf on Fridays because it is regarded as one of the Quran’s most important verses. There are 110 verses in it, and they address many different topics, such as religion, knowledge, the concept of monotheism, and the pleasures and penalties of the hereafter.
The surah also includes four notable stories, in addition to the story of the Companions of the Cave, which are:
- The story of the man with two gardens (verses 32-44)
- The story of Moses and Khidr (verses 60-82)
- The story of Dhul-Qarnayn (verses 83-98)
- The story of the rich and the poor (verses 19-26)
Muslims believe that reciting Surah Kahf on Fridays can bring blessings and protection from trials and tribulations. Muslims who want to better comprehend Islam and their beliefs are said to find direction and inspiration from the surah.
