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 PRAISE BE to God who has revealed to His votary the Book which is free of all obliquity, (1) Straightforward, that it may warn of a severe violence from before Him, and bring glad tidings to the believers who work righteous works that theirs shall be a goodly hire. (2) and they will live for ever therein. (3) And that it may warn those who say: God hath taken a son. (4) (A thing) whereof they have no knowledge, nor (had) their fathers, Dreadful is the word that cometh out of their mouths. They speak naught but a lie. (5) Will you kill yourself for grief of them if they do not believe in this presentation? (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) Verily what is on earth we shall make but as dust and dry soil (without growth or herbage). (8) Deemest thou that the people of the cave and the inscription were of Our signs a wonder? (9) [Mention] when the youths retreated to the cave and said, "Our Lord, grant us from Yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair right guidance." (10) We sealed 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)
