I had a dream that Shaykh Hisham was saying that the Gates of Cairo (abwab alkahira) are mentioned in Surat Yusuf and that the explanation/verification of this is in Surat alRaad.
What is the meaning of this?
Here Qahira (Cairo) doubles for Akhira (Hereafter) and Surat ar-Ra`d signifies the angel named Ra`d who is in charge of thunder. Meaning: the flooding of Cairo is a necessary foresign of the very last days and it will be effected through cataclysmic events, and Allah knows best.
