The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Praise be to Allah Who has revealed to His servant the Book devoid of all crookedness; (1) an unerringly Straight Book, meant to warn of a stern punishment from Allah, and to proclaim, to those who believe and work righteous deeds, the tiding that theirs shall be a good reward (2) Staying in it for ever; (3) And to warn those who say, "Allah has taken a son." (4) They have no knowledge of this, as their fathers did not have. How terrible are the words they utter! They speak nothing but lies. (5) Yet perchance, if they believe not in this tiding, thou wilt consume thyself, following after them, of grief. (6) We have adorned the earth with attractive things, so that We may test mankind as to which one is best in conduct, (7) And indeed, We will make that which is upon it [into] a barren ground. (8) Deemest thou that the people of the cave and the inscription were of Our signs a wonder? (9) When those youths sought refuge in the Cave and said: "Our Lord! Grant us mercy from Yourself and provide for us rectitude in our affairs." (10) For many years We sealed up their hearing in the Cave, (11) Thereafter We raised them up that We might know which of the two parties was best at reckoning the time that they had tarried. (12)
