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 is [due] to Allah, who has sent down upon His Servant the Book and has not made therein any deviance. (1) (He has made it) Straight to give warning (to the disbelievers) of a severe punishment from Him, and to give glad tidings to the believers (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism), who work righteous deeds, that they shall have a fair reward (i.e. Paradise). (2) Wherein they will abide for ever; (3) and to warn those who say, 'God has taken to Himself a son'; (4) No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. It is a grievous thing that issues from their mouths as a saying what they say is nothing but falsehood! (5) Possibly you may risk your life by grieving (O dear Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him) for them if they do not believe in this narration. (6) We have appointed all that is on the earth for an adornment for it, and that We may try which of them is fairest in works; (7) And most surely We will make what is on it bare ground without herbage. (8) Do you not think that the story of the Companions of the Cave and the Inscription was one of Our marvelous miracles? (9) When the young men fled for refuge to the Cave and said: Our Lord! Give us mercy from Thy presence, and shape for us right conduct in our plight. (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)
