Alhamdulilahi Rabbil Ala’min Ar Rahmanir Rahim

As’alaamu Alaikkum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu 

Prophet Muhammad (SalAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) used to retreat to the cave just on the outskirts of Mecca to get away from the crowds that were worshipping idols. Deep in his soul he knew that it was wrong and he wanted to reflect and make sense of the life that is being played out in his home city of Mecca. The cave at Hira not only gave him space to reflect but it gave him a sanctuary from the madding crowd, and what he found inside the cave was salvation. Like Prophet Ibrahim (Alayhi Salaam) Muhammad (SalAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) knew that he had to get away from his forefathers who were worshipping idols that had no life and could not even answer the cries of the supplicant.  

Those who seek salvation must leave their world behind and must enter the cave. Inside it is Islam, a world that is separate from this Dunya. To achieve salvation one must live inside this cave and live according to the laws that are contained within it. Here you can concentrate 100% in pleasing God and live a life that is pleasing to Him.

Enter the cave and join Muhammad (SalAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) and be part of his final covenant with God Almighty. On entering all you have to do is utter “Ashadu anla Illaha Illallah was ashadu anna Muhammdan abduhu rasooluhu”. Once inside the cave, do what people who are already inside is doing, that is praying, giving to charity, fasting and going on pilgrimage to the House in Mecca if you are able to.

Given the choice of eternal salvation, what would you choose? The cave or the world outside?
