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
All praise unto Allah who hath sent down unto His bondman the Book, 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) [a state of bliss] in which they shall dwell beyond the count of time. (3) Further, that He may warn those (also) who say, "Allah hath begotten a son": (4) They have no knowledge of it, nor had their fathers. Grave is the word that comes out of their mouths; they speak not except a lie. (5) Haply thou art going to kill thyself over their footsteps, if they believe not in this discourse, out of sorrow. (6) We have made whatever exists on the earth its adornment to test and try them (and) know who acts better; (7) Verily what is on earth we shall make but as dust and dry soil (without growth or herbage). (8) Do you think the men of the cave and Ar-Raqim were so strange among Our 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) So We cast [a cover of sleep] over their ears within the cave for a number of years. (11) and thereafter We revived them to find out which of the two parties could best calculate the length of their stay. (12)
