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 unto Allah who hath sent down unto His bondman the Book, and hath not placed therein any crookedness. (1) and which rightly directs, to give warning of stern punishment from Him, and to proclaim to the believers who do righteous deeds that they shall have an excellent recompense, (2) In which they will abide forever. (3) and admonish those who say that God has begotten a son. (4) (A thing) whereof they have no knowledge, nor (had) their fathers, Dreadful is the word that cometh out of their mouths. They speak naught but a lie. (5) Thou wouldst only, perchance, fret thyself to death, following after them, in grief, if they believe not in this Message. (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) For We shall certainly turn it to barren dust. (8) Or, do you think that the Fellows of the Cave and the Inscription were of Our wonderful signs? (9) When those young men took shelter in the cave, and prayed: "O Lord, grant us Your favour and dispose our affair aright," (10) For many years We sealed up their hearing in the Cave, (11) and thereafter We revived them to find out which of the two parties could best calculate the length of their stay. (12)
