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
All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has sent down to His slave (Muhammad SAW) the Book (the Quran), and has not placed therein any crookedness. (1) an unerringly Straight Book, meant to warn of a stern punishment from Allah, and to proclaim, to those who believe and work righteous deeds, the tiding that theirs shall be a good reward (2) Where they will 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 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 appointed all that is on the earth an adornment for it, in order that We try which of them is finest in works. (7) And verily! We shall make all that is on it (the earth) a bare dry soil (without any vegetation or trees, etc.). (8) Or, do you think that the Fellows of the Cave and the Inscription were of Our wonderful signs? (9) When the young men took refuge in the Cave then said, “Our Lord! Give us mercy from Yourself, and arrange guidance for us in our affair.” (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)
