The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
[All] praise is [due] to Allah, who has sent down upon His Servant the Book and has not made therein any deviance. (1) A just Book, to warn of Allah’s severe punishment, and to give glad tidings to the believers who do good deeds, that for them is an excellent reward. (2) [a state of bliss] in which they shall dwell beyond the count of time. (3) And to warn those who say: Allah hath chosen a son, (4) They have no knowledge of it, nor had their fathers; a grievous word it is that comes out of their mouths; they speak nothing but 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 made whatever exists on the earth its adornment to test and try them (and) know who acts better; (7) In the ultimate, We shall reduce all that is on the earth to a barren plain. (8) [AND SINCE the life of this world is but a test, dost thou [really] think that [the parable of] the Men of the Cave and of [their devotion to] the scriptures could be deemed more wondrous than any [other] of Our messages? (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) Then We sealed up their hearing in the Cave for a number of years. (11) and thereafter We revived them to find out which of the two parties could best calculate the length of their stay. (12)
