Surah kahf # reflections2
Story of young men of the cave
What is remarkable is:
*they were young men who abstained from evil.
(NOT “do what all young people are doing!”)
*they were young and united for a good cause.
(NOT drinking,drugs,dance,party or zina)
*they were young,brave,notafraid of people that they would be harmed in worldly matters but they wanted to safeguard their faith even though the people around them were evil.
(NOT “go with the flow”)
*they were young men who believed in Allah and look at how they stood out !
When you have too much faith in anyone besides,Allah-you are on the road to failure.
Belief in One True God,Allah and their desire to do something made them different.)
The reason why i mentioned “young” in some points is to emphasize that if you are young then this is what you ought to do,if you want to be successful and unique.
Allah (SWT) says what can be translated as,“Surely they were young men who believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance” (Quran, 18:13).
