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
ALL PRAISE BE to God who has revealed to His votary the Book which is free of all obliquity, (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) [a state of bliss] in which they shall dwell beyond the count of time. (3) And to warn those who say “Allah has chosen a child.” (4) They have no knowledge of it, nor had their fathers. Grave is the word that comes out of their mouths; they speak not except a lie. (5) Then maybe you will kill yourself with grief, sorrowing after them, if they do not believe in this announcement. (6) We have appointed all that is on the earth an adornment for it, in order that We try which of them is finest in works. (7) For We shall certainly turn it to barren dust. (8) Do you think that the people of the Cave and the Inscription were one of Our wondrous signs? (9) When the young men sought refuge in the cave, they said, "Our Lord, grant us Your special mercy and give us right guidance in our affair." (10) So We cast [a cover of sleep] over their ears within the cave for a number of years. (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)
