The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
All praise is to Allah Who sent down the Book upon His bondman, and has not kept any deviation in it. (1) (But hath made it) straight, to give warning of stern punishment from Him, and to bring unto the believers who do good works the news that theirs will be a fair reward, (2) They shall abide therein forever. (3) And to warn those who say, "God has taken to Himself 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) But wouldst thou, perhaps, torment thyself to death with grief over them if they are not willing to believe in this message? (6) We have adorned the earth with attractive things, so that We may test mankind as to which one is best in conduct, (7) We will surely reduce all that is on it to barren dust. (8) Do you think the men of the cave and Ar-Raqim were so strange among Our signs? (9) When the youths sought refuge in the Cave, they said: 'Lord give us from Your Mercy and furnish us with rectitude in our affair' (10) So We prevented them from hearing in the cave for a number of years. (11) We then awakened them to see which of the two groups more accurately tells the period they had stayed. (12)
