If you have been following the Al-Kahf Challenge Series,
you should have memorized and learned the first ten ayat of the Surah – alhamdulillah!
From this post onwards, the series will be focusing on the last ten ayat of Surah Al-Kahf.
To read the series in chronological order, please click the links below:
Say: “If the sea were ink for [writing] the words of my Rabb,
the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Rabb were exhausted,
even if We brought the like of it as a supplement.”
This Ayah addresses the power and might of Allah’s Words. If the entire ocean was the ink for a pen to write down the words, wisdom, and signs of Allah, the sea would run dry long before all could be written down.
How many decades and how many generations of Muslims have taken upon themselves to study the Qur’an? Yet none of us can say that we have fully finished studying it. None of us can say that we have truly and extensively understood the meaning of the Qur’an.
This is because no one can comprehend the greatness of Allah, or praise Him as He deserves to be praised. The blessings of this world, in comparison to the blessings of the Hereafter, are like a tiny mustard seed compared to the entire world.
Indeed Ar-Rabi’ ibn Anas said, “The parable of the knowledge of all of mankind, in comparison to the knowledge of Allah, is that of a drop of water in comparison to all of the oceans.”
