Yemenis believe ‘Al-Kahaf’ in Al-Ma’qab

By: Abu Raed

SANAA, Yemen: A large number of people daily visit during the holy month of Ramadan an old Mosque situated in a small village Al-Ma’qab, 250 Kilometers south of Yemeni capital Sanaa, keeping faith that offering prayer in it is much rewarding than in other mosques.

The residents of the village which is situated at High Mountain “Sabr” at the height of around 3,200 feet from sea level believe that the very old Mosque named as “Al-Kahaf Mosque” is built on the cave which was refuge and shelter of “Ashab-e-Kahaf” whose story is mentioned in the holy Quran.

The cave, in the mosque, is surrounded by a wooden boundary and covered with a stone.

A custodian of the Mosque Muhammad Abdohu Al-Faqih, 75, said that the cave at present is not seen except a small hole and he believes it is that cave mentioned in the Quran.

He said the thing that causes throng of visitors is their feeling of the presence of the wind that blows as they stretch hands inside the hole present in the midst of mosque.

Jordanians believe that the Cave is in Amman while some other are of the opinion it is in Egypt.

Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."
