In the second part of his commentary on Surat al-Kahf, Dr Kevin Barrett narrates the story and travels of Dhul-Qarnayn, the powerful yet humble figure before God.
Surat al-Kahf, the 18th surah in the noble Qur’an, has attracted unusual amount of commentary. Its three main narratives – concerning the People of the Cave, Moses and the mysterious servant of God, and the travels of Dhul-Qarnayn – are somewhat enigmatic and seem to demand interpretation.
On one side of Khorasan, Iranian revolutionaries struck a blow against the US (capitalist) empire. On the other side, Afghan freedom fighters struck a blow against the Russian (communist) empire. Taken together, these events signaled the decline and fall of the two major Western imperial ideologies of the 19th and 20th centuries. Therefore the simplest and most obvious interpretation of the Khorasan ahadith is that the “Muslim army” that will liberate al-Quds is a unified army of the Islamic Awakening which emerged simultaneously from the two sides of Khorastan in 1979.
