The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Praise be to Allah Who hath revealed the Scripture unto His slave, and hath not placed therein any crookedness, (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) In which they will abide 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 do not believe in this tiding, you will consume yourself with grief and follow after them. (6) Lo! We have placed all that is on the earth as an ornament thereof that We may try them: which of them is best in conduct. (7) Verily what is on earth we shall make but as dust and dry soil (without growth or herbage). (8) Did you know that the People of the Cave and People close to the Woods, were Our exceptional signs? (9) When those young men took shelter in the cave, and prayed: "O Lord, grant us Your favour and dispose our affair aright," (10) We then thumped upon their ears in the Cave for a number of years. (* Put them to sleep.) (11) and thereafter We revived them to find out which of the two parties could best calculate the length of their stay. (12)
