The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
ALL PRAISE is due to God, who has bestowed this divine writ from on high upon His servant, and has not allowed any deviousness to obscure its meaning: (1) (He hath made it) Straight (and Clear) in order that He may warn (the godless) of a terrible Punishment from Him, and that He may give Glad Tidings to the Believers who work righteous deeds, that they shall have a goodly Reward, (2) They will abide therein for ever. (3) and also to warn those who say: "Allah has taken to Himself a son," (4) No knowledge whatever have they of Him, and neither had their forefathers: dreadful - is this saying that comes out of their mouths, [and] nothing but falsehood do they utter! (5) Then maybe you will kill yourself with grief, sorrowing after them, if they do not believe in this announcement. (6) We have caused earthly things to seem attractive so that We can see who will excel in good deeds. (7) and We shall surely make all that is on it barren dust. (8) Or deemest thou that the People of the Cave and the Inscription are a wonder among Our portents? (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) Therefore We covered up their (sense of) hearing (causing them, to go in deep sleep) in the Cave for a number of years. (11) We then awakened them to see which of the two groups more accurately tells the period they had stayed. (12)
