The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Praise be to Allah, Who hath sent to His Servant the Book, and hath allowed therein no Crookedness: (1) so that he could warn them of His stern retribution, give the glad news of the best and everlasting reward to the righteously striving believers, (2) Where they will abide for ever; (3) And it (the Koran) warns those who say: 'Allah has taken 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) 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 adorned the earth with attractive things, so that We may test mankind as to which one is best in conduct, (7) Verily what is on earth we shall make but as dust and dry soil (without growth or herbage). (8) Or dost thou think the Men of the Cave and Er-Rakeem were among Our signs a wonder? (9) When those young men took shelter in the cave, and prayed: "O Lord, grant us Your favour and dispose our affair aright," (10) Wherefore We put a covering over their ears in the cave for a number of years. (11) Then We raised them up (from their sleep), that We might test which of the two parties was best at calculating the time period that they had tarried. (12)
