The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the 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) unswerving. To warn of great violence from Him, and to give good tidings to the believers who do good deeds that theirs shall be a goodly wage (2) In which they will remain forever (3) And to warn those (Jews, Christians, and pagans) who say, "Allah has begotten a son (or offspring or children)." (4) They have no knowledge of this, as their fathers did not have. How terrible are the words they utter! They speak nothing but lies. (5) Yet perchance, if they believe not in this tiding, thou wilt consume thyself, following after them, of grief. (6) We have adorned the earth with attractive things, so that We may test mankind as to which one is best in conduct, (7) and We shall surely make all that is on it barren dust. (8) Or, do you think the companions of the Cave and the tomb stone were a wonder among Our signs? (9) When the youths took refuge in the Cave saying, 'Our lord, give us mercy from Thee, and furnish us with rectitude in our affair.' (10) Then We caused them to fall into a deep sleep for many years inside the cave. (11) And afterward We raised them up that We might know which of the two parties would best calculate the time that they had tarried. (12)
