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 Most Merciful
All praise is to Allah Who sent down the Book upon His bondman, and has not kept any deviation in it. (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) wherein they shall remain forever, (3) And to warn those who say: Allah hath chosen a son, (4) a thing about which they have no knowledge, neither they nor their ancestors. Dreadful is the word that comes out of their mouths. What they utter is merely a lie. (5) Then maybe you will kill yourself with grief, sorrowing after them, if they do not believe in this announcement. (6) That which is on earth we have made but as a glittering show for the earth, in order that We may test them - as to which of them are best in conduct. (7) For We shall certainly turn it to barren dust. (8) Did you know that the People of the Cave and People close to the Woods, were Our exceptional signs? (9) When the young men sought refuge in the cave, they said, "Our Lord, grant us Your special mercy and give us right guidance in our affair." (10) Then We draw (a veil) over their ears, for a number of years, in the Cave, (so that they heard not): (11) Then We woke them up again so that We might see which of the two groups would better calculate the time they had stayed there. (12)
