The Tales of the Trials: Seeing Life through Surah Al-Kahf
Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
Valley Stream, NY
Alhamdulillah, with the immense mercy of Allah SWT and through the relentless efforts of Ulama-e-Kiraam of New York City, an All Day Spring Youth Retreat 2013 is just upon us. Just a reminder, the purpose of this event, InshaAllah, is to connect the Youth living in the Tri-State area, with the traditional Muslim Scholars and to provide them with an outlet to acquire authentic and traditional Islamic knowledge. Through practicing upon such knowledge is the way to attain the Love of Rasool Allah and the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu-wa-Ta'ala. The youth are our future and it’s incumbent upon us to help instill the Islamic knowledge, values and practices in them. These Youth Retreats and programs will be used as tools to help the youth in becoming superior Allah fearing Muslims and law abiding civil citizens.
The basic concept behind the theme are the four stories in Surah Al Kahf.
1) The People of The Cave
It’s the story of young men who lived in a disbelieving town, so they decided to migrate for the sake of Allah and run away. -Allah rewards them with mercy in the cave and protection from the sun - They woke up and found the entire village believers.
MORAL: TRIAL OF FAITH.
2) The Owner of Two Gardens
A story of a man whom Allah blessed with two beautiful gardens, but the man forgot to thank the One who blessed him with everything and he even dared to doubt Allah regarding the afterlife. So His garden was destroyed - He regretted, but was too late and his regret did not beneﬁt him.
MORAL: TRIAL OF WEALTH.
3) Musa (AS) and Khidr (AS)
When Musa (AS) was asked-“Who’s the most knowledgeable of the people of earth?”” Musa (AS) said: Me…, but Allah revealed to him that there’s someone who knows more than him. Musa (AS) traveled to the man and learnt how the Divine Wisdom can sometimes be hidden in matters which we perceive as bad.
MORAL: TRIAL OF KNOWLEDGE.
It’s a story of the great King that was given knowledge and power and was going around the world, helping people and spreading all that’s good. He was able to overcome the problem of Yajooj-Majooj and build a massive dam with the help of people whom he could not even understand.
MORAL: TRIAL OF POWER.
