The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
(All) praise is due to Allah, Who revealed the Book to His servant and did not make in it any crookedness. (1) Immutable, so that it may warn of a severe punishment from Him; and give happy tidings to those who believe and do the right that there is a better reward (of Paradise) for them, (2) therein to abide for ever, (3) Furthermore, [this divine writ is meant] to warn all those who assert, "God has taken unto Himself a son." (4) No knowledge thereof have they, nor had their fathers. Odious is the word that cometh out of their mouths; they say not but a lie. (5) Perhaps you may destroy yourself with grief if they do not believe in this message. (6) We have made whatever exists on the earth its adornment to test and try them (and) know who acts better; (7) and, verily, [in time] We shall reduce all that is on it to barren dust! (8) Or, do you think the companions of the Cave and the tomb stone were a wonder among Our signs? (9) When those youths sought refuge in the Cave and said: "Our Lord! Grant us mercy from Yourself and provide for us rectitude in our affairs." (10) So We prevented them from hearing in the cave for a number of years. (11) and then We awakened them: [and We did all this] so that We might mark out [to the world] which of the two points of view showed a better comprehension of the time-span during which they had remained in this state. (12)
