(تِلْكَ السَّكِينَةُ نَزَلَتْ مَعَ الْقُرْآنِ أَوْ نَزَلَتْ عَلَى الْقُرْآنِ)

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said to the companion who was reciting AlKahf : “That was the tranquility which descends with the Qur’an, or descends because of the Qur’an.”

Join us every Friday after Thuhar prayer as BIS President Dr. Basyouny Nehela guides us through the recitation and reflection of Surah AlKahf – virtual session open to all.

Let us show Allah Almighty we are making a collective effort towards understanding His Holy Book and convey to Him that we are truly concerned about our current state by making tangible, sincere changes in our lives.

May he accept our efforts, guide us to the right path and descend tranquility upon our lives, Ameen.

Don’t forget to share the motivation and encourage others to learn the importance of Surah AlKahf by inviting them to join us too!


“I avidly tune in to the Surah al-kahf immersion sessions every Friday from the UK. I have never before been a part of such an innovative seminar. It is truly inspiring to hear other brothers and sisters from around the world actively engage in the pursuit better their knowledge and recitation. The commentaries have also been enlightening and as a result I have myself become more reflective when reading the passages of the holy Qur’an. JazakAllah Khair for letting us be a part of such enriching lessons and may everyone involved be rewarded immensely!” – Zainab, United Kingdom
