Shaykh Walead reflects on some of the thematic lessons from Surat al-Kahf. He explains that it is beneficial to reflect on the four main types of trials that are portrayed in the surah: being tried in religion, wealth, knowledge and power. Shaykh Walead further explains that those that are tried in this life with power have the same archetypes that repeat themselves in every age in history; there will always be pharaohs. Shaykh Walead then highlights that we should worry about our inner pharaoh, which is manifest in how we deal with any power that we hold over people, at any level it may be in.
