The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
Praise be to God. He has sent the Book to His servant and has made it a flawless guide (for human beings) (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) therein to abide for ever, (3) And it (the Koran) warns those who say: 'Allah has taken a son' (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) Yet perchance, if they do not believe in this tiding, you will consume yourself with grief and follow after them. (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) Do you not think that the story of the Companions of the Cave and the Inscription was one of Our marvelous miracles? (9) (Remember) when the young men fled for refuge (from their disbelieving folk) to the Cave, they said: "Our Lord! Bestow on us mercy from Yourself, and facilitate for us our affair in the right way!" (10) For many years We sealed up their hearing in the Cave, (11) Then roused them to ascertain which of the two groups could account for the period they had stayed. (12)
