Although his pioneering work entitled 'Jerusalem in the Qur’an' (written in 2002) has become a best-seller with translations in many languages, ‘Surah al-Kahf and the Modern Age’ (written in 2007) is likely to be recognized in the years that lie ahead, as Imran N. Hosein’s most important work.
The book begins with a fascinating chapter on 'The Qur'an and Time' which convincingly explains the enigmatic Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah Most High be upon him): "when Dajjal is released he would live on earth for 40 days; one day like a year, one day like a month, one day like a week, and all his days (i.e., all the rest of his days) like your days". (Sahih Muslim)
That explanation and analysis opens the way for the book to reveal, for the first time, the link between four parables/narratives located in the Surah and such major Signs of the Last Day as Dajjal the false Messiah and Gog & Magog(Yajuj wa Ma'juj).
Indeed the heart of the book is located in the unique interpretation and analysis of those four parables/narratives: 'The Young Men in the Cave', 'The Rich Man and the Poor Man', 'The Encounter of Moses with Khidr', and the story of 'Dhul Qarnain', and the explanation of their links with Dajjal and with Gog & Magog (Yajuj wa Ma'juj).
The book makes a bold and pioneering attempt to so interpret this Surah of the blessed Qur’an that the reality of the world in which we now live is dramatically explained. It may take some time before Imran’s interpretation of the Qur’an concerning the reality of the modern world is accepted by the world of Islamic scholarship, but that acceptance is inevitable.
