The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Praise belongs to Allah who has sent down the Book to His worshiper (Prophet Muhammad) and has not made any crookedness in it, (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) And that it may warn those who say: God hath taken a son. (4) No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. Mighty is the word that comes out of their mouths [i.e. He begot (took) sons and daughters]. They utter nothing but a lie. (5) Yet perchance, if they believe not in this tiding, thou wilt consume thyself, following after them, of grief. (6) That which is on earth we have made but as a glittering show for the earth, in order that We may test them - as to which of them are best in conduct. (7) For We shall certainly turn it to barren dust. (8) Or, do you think the companions of the Cave and the tomb stone were a wonder among Our signs? (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) For many years We sealed up their hearing in the Cave, (11) Afterwards. We raised them up again, that We might know which of the two parties would better calculate the while they had tarried. (12)
