Faith versus Materialism: The Message of Surat al-Kahf
Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi
The methodology of reform evolved by God's apostles is inspired by an unflinching faith and sincere conviction in the After-Life. On the other hand, the idea of After-Life is often employed by the modern reformist movements solely as an expedient to social and moral reform. The result obtained by the two is well known. This exegesis of Surah al-Kahf explains, in the light of the Qur'an, the challenging issues of the modern times and what guidance we can get from this Surah to find a solution.
