Companions Of The Cave!
Asslam o Alikum WarahmatuLLHI Wa Barakatuhu!
THIS IS A “CONTRIBITION” (page) POST from a contributer:
Brothers and Sisters!, we hope that you are are enjoying good state of faith!.
We as human beings pass from different stages of our life, childhood, teen age , adulthood, old age , and other see saw stages. I realized truly today that each and every stage of life has got its own different tests.
We are tested differently in childhood, some other way in adult hood and so on.
Today when you think of the restless nights of your school days, when you felt horrible for the up coming tests, you just laugh , and think that was not at all a tension… may be the difficulties you are facing today will become a joke tomorrow for you as well when you will think about them…
But we have to “pass” each and every test. Satan will try to drive you away from ALLAH’S path, and you have to throw him away from near you .
Specially Youth! it is called the best part of life, but it is also the most dangerous part.
If you are today in your youthfulness, your “spring” days, then remember, don’t allow Satan to make mess of your youth., , make your youth a green land of good deeds.
The real, and actual test and hardship of youth is to keep yourself safe from wrong doings, the best use Satan makes in this age is the mind, he uses the mind of a young to astray him. And then penetrating into the mind he uses the whole “you”.
Now how to keep yourself safe from his attacks???
I don’t know what to say!, im just going to tell you a personal experience .
I was facing some disturbing condition of a youthful mind (hopefully no need to explain). , seeking no refuge., at last went to the similar “helpline” i always go to. Book of the Lord, the last book, the true book. AL QURAN.
Can you imagine the state of happiness when you are in extreme mental disturbance, you just take some book, open it , and you find the answer to your miseries there???
It happens, by Lord happens with me, whenever i use this “helpline”, it works, and makes me satisfied.
Well i was telling you that after getting so disturbed, i thought im under some assay, an assay of youthfulness . , but how to pass this test? How to keep Satanic thoughts away???
This is what i was searching, and just opened the book.
Before me opened Surah Kah’f (cave) , i started reading…..
And suddenly i became more interested in reading when i read that “companions of the caves” were “young”. i became sure that the solution to my problem is coming nearer, continued reading, , , and yes yes yes!!!
“Indeed, We have made that which is on the earth adornment for it that We may test them [as to] which of them is best in deed. And indeed, We will make that which is upon it [into] a barren ground.
Or have you thought that the companions of the cave and the inscription were, among Our signs, a wonder?
[Mention] when the youths retreated to the cave and said, “Our Lord, grant us from Yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair right guidance.” 18;07 – 18:10
This is actually that dua (prayer) which the companions of the cave made when they were in trouble. i recieted once, twice, thrice the verse and kept recieting. The words brought calmness to the heart. In that time, hundereds and hundereds of years ago, a group of pious young asked ALLAH’s help with these exact words . How can we imagine we will not be given help if we pray Him today with the similar words.?
If anytime you feel the miseries of the youth age, Go before your Lord, and ask Him that O ALLAH, i am dirty, wash me.
And now i am going to fight Satan by reciting this verse, every time he will try to astray me , il ask ALLAH’S help recieting this verse.:)
“Our Lord, grant us from Yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair right guidance.” (Al kah’f)

Also by chance i pressed the play button and it was a beautiful voice recieting one of my favorite chapters.! ALLAHU AKBAR!
INDEED THE WORD OF LORD IS TRUE
