Intro
We have covered MGA and all of his utterances in terms of Dajjal and posted them herein, it doesn’t seem like MGA ever commented on the first 10 verses of Al-Kahf. However, he did comment on the last 10 and the last 20. In 1879, in the BA2, MGA quoted 18:109 (18:110, in the Ahmadi quran) and thus using this verse for his own prophethood. MGA didn’t mention any hadith at this point, nor did he connect the last 10 verses with protection against the Dajjal. In BA-3 (See page 108), MGA quoted one of the first 10 verses of Al-Kahf, however, he didn’t connect it with the Dajjal, Christian missionaries and etc. In BA-4 (see pages 316, 327 and 439), MGA quotes one of the last 10 verses of Al-Kahf, however, he didn’t connect it with the Dajjal, Christian missionaries and etc. By 1891–1893, MGA made his wild claims and argued that Dajjal was the Christian missionaries, and the British and Russian governments.

Just before MGA died, via MGA’s book “Chasma-e-Marifat”, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed that the blowing of the trumpet in the Quran, is about the coming of the Messiah (18:100). In BA-5, which was published after MGA died, it is written that MGA=Dhul Qarnain, this falls into the last 20 verses of Sura Al-Kahf. In the 1960’s at Rabwah, the 2nd Khalifa published Malfuzat and it is written therein that MGA did believe that the first 10 verses related to the Anti-Christ (aka Dajjal) (See Malfuzat-3, online english edition, pages 99-100).

After MGA died, and via Malfuzat(see pages 99-100), MGA made the connection, however, this was in the 1960’s in Rabwah.

Thus, in 1917, the Lahori-Ahmadi, Muhammad Ali published his famous english commentary and called the authentic hadith of Muhammad (Saw) in terms of Al-Kahf and Dajjal as true, however, he said, “the first 10 or the last 10”.

In 1988, via the famous 5-volume commentary of the Quran by Malik Ghulam Farid, the Ahmadiyya Movement called the famous authentic hadith which was related by Abu Hurraira and in terms of Dajjal and how Muhammad (Saw) specifically told Muslims to recite the first 10 verses of Sura-Al-Kahf (Chapter 18) to get protection from Dajjal as fake hadith. However, he acknowledged the last 10 (most likely since MGA quoted it).

Tafsir-ibn-Kathir

Tafsir Ibn Kathir clearly tells us that there is a connection, furthermore, there are countless authentic hadith.

Abu Darda’ reported Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying:
If anyone learns by heart the first ten verses of the Surah al-Kahf, he will be protected from the Dajjal.
وَحَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى، حَدَّثَنَا مُعَاذُ بْنُ هِشَامٍ، حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، عَنْ سَالِمِ، بْنِ أَبِي الْجَعْدِ الْغَطَفَانِيِّ عَنْ مَعْدَانَ بْنِ أَبِي طَلْحَةَ الْيَعْمَرِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي الدَّرْدَاءِ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ حَفِظَ عَشْرَ آيَاتٍ مِنْ أَوَّلِ سُورَةِ الْكَهْفِ عُصِمَ مِنَ الدَّجَّالِ ‏”

Abu al Darda, Allah be pleased with him, related that the Prophet of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace) said,

“Whoever commits ten verses from the beginning Sura al Kahf will be protected from the Dajjal.”
(Muslim, Abu Dawud, Nasa’i, and others; the wording is Muslim’s).

In a narration in Muslim and Abu Dawud it states, From the end of Sura al Kahf. Tirmidhi related this with the words,

“Whoever recites three verses from the beginning of Al Kahf will be protected from the tribulations of the Dajjal.”
(Mundhiri, Al Targhib wa al Tarhib, 2172-2173)

Imam Shafi‘i, (May Allah have mercy on him) said:

“It has reached us that whoever recites Sura al Kahf on Fridays will be protected from the Dajjal.”
[Shafi‘i, Al Umm, 1.239]

It is recommended to recite Sura al Kahf in its entirety the night before Friday It is also recommended to do so on Friday itself, before Maghrib. Ibn Abidin said,

“And it is best to do so early on Friday, in order to rush to the good and to avoid forgetting.”
(Ibn Abidin, Radd al Muhtar, Bab al Jumu‘a)

The Evidence and The Wisdom

The evidence for it being recommended includes the hadith related by Hakim and Bayhaqi, from Abu Sa‘id, Allah be pleased with him,

“Whoever recites Sura al Kahf on Friday, light shall shine forth for him between the two Fridays.”
(Ibn Hajar, Talkhis al Habir)

Sahih Muslim 588 a
Abu Huraira reported:
The Messenger of Allah (way peace be upon him) said: When any one of you utters tashahhud (in prayer) he must seek refuge with Allah from four (trials) and should thus say:” O Allah! I seek refuge with Thee from the torment of the Hell, from the torment of the grave, from the trial of life and death and from the evil of the trial of Masih al-Dajjal” (Antichrist).
وَحَدَّثَنَا نَصْرُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ الْجَهْضَمِيُّ، وَابْنُ، نُمَيْرٍ وَأَبُو كُرَيْبٍ وَزُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ جَمِيعًا عَنْ وَكِيعٍ، – قَالَ أَبُو كُرَيْبٍ حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ، – حَدَّثَنَا الأَوْزَاعِيُّ، عَنْ حَسَّانَ بْنِ عَطِيَّةَ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي عَائِشَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، وَعَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ أَبِي كَثِيرٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ إِذَا تَشَهَّدَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَسْتَعِذْ بِاللَّهِ مِنْ أَرْبَعٍ يَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عَذَابِ جَهَنَّمَ وَمِنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ وَمِنْ فِتْنَةِ الْمَحْيَا وَالْمَمَاتِ وَمِنْ شَرِّ فِتْنَةِ الْمَسِيحِ الدَّجَّالِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

1879-1880

In 1879, in the BA2, MGA quoted 18:109 (18:110, in the Ahmadi quran)(see also 31:27, the verse is identical) and says that “”Say, ‘If the ocean became ink for the words of my Lord, surely, the ocean would be exhausted before the words of my Lord came to an end, even though We brought the like thereof as further help.’. Thus, MGA was arguing from the Quran that Allah will continue talking (prophethood) to Muslims until the Day of Judgement and this Islam was superior to all other religions. In volume 3, MGA quoted 9:32, and essentially was claiming prophethood for himself. In fact, MGA’s first argument in the BA was that of the continuation of divine revelation, however, MGA wasn’t being clear.
