In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. O Allah! I seek refuge in You from knowingly associating partners with You in any way, and I seek Your forgiveness for that which I do not know. Ameen.
Rasulullah s.a.w. said: "The man whom God hates the
most is the one who is stubborn and quarrelsome." (Hadith Muslim History)
Based on the hadith above it is clear to us that there are two human traits that Allah s.w.t hates the most is Stubborn and one who likes to argue.
For now we are going to discuss on stubborn.
Iblis thinks he is more noble than Prophet Adam a.s. because he was created from fire while Adam was created from earth. Stubborn devils do not want to submit to the command of Allah
s.w.t. and he remained stubborn with his own opinion and disobeyed the instructions of Allah s.w.t. This stubborn nature is actually accompanied by arrogance, arrogance, arrogance and ego.
All these attributes of mazmumah are hated by Allah s.w.t. and these attributes are the attributes of the inhabitants of hell.
Allah s.w.t. said which means:
"(Iblis) replied, Because You have led me astray, I must have always prevented them from Your straight path. Then
surely I will come at them from in front, from behind, from their right and from their left. And You will not find most of them grateful" Surah al-A'raf: verses 16-17)
This shows that the devil's disbelief is not because of ignorance but rather his disbelief because of stubbornness and arrogance.
If we look in our society do we meet stubborn people? Yes, we will meet many people who are stubborn, stubborn, egoistic and arrogant.
In Surah Nuh it is
clearly shown that stubborn people still do not want to believe even though Prophet Nuh a.s preached day and night for almost 950 years.
The word of Allah SWT means: "And indeed every time I call them (to believe) so that You forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears and cover their clothes (faces) and they remain (denied) and are very proud of themselves." (Surah Nuh verse 7)
Therefore, let's pray that we are far from the characteristic of Stubborness.
Because it will only lead you to being far from doing good and being good. And will lead to the closure of the door of progressiveness.

Surah al-Kahfi is a light that illuminates the path of guidance for whoever reads it, as
it stops Muslims from disobedience and sins, and guides them to the path of goodness and righteousness. And it may
be a real, tangible light, as it was reported from the Prophet s.a.w. that who recites Surah Kahfi on Friday, a light will shine for him from under his feet to the clouds of heaven that will shine with it on the Day of Resurrection.
Also, Surah Al-Kahfi protects its reader from the temptation of the Dajjal by
memorizing the first ten verses of it.
Surat Al Kahf talked about many incidents. The story of the people of the cave (As-haabul Kahf) is the most famous, hence the surah gets its name. The story of the man of the gardens, the story of Musa a.s. and Khidr, and the story of Dhul-Qarnayn “Just Leader”. The surah
also has many verses with benefits, instructions, and teachings for Muslims.
