The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
All praise unto Allah who hath sent down unto His bondman the Book, and hath not placed therein any crookedness. (1) Rightly directing, that he might give warning of severe punishment from Him and give good news to the believers who do good that they shall have a goodly reward, (2) wherein they shall abide for ever; (3) And to warn those who say, "God has taken to Himself 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) Haply thou art going to kill thyself over their footsteps, if they believe not in this discourse, out of sorrow. (6) We have indeed placed all that is on the earth as its adornment in order that We may test them, who among them has the best deeds. (7) And indeed We shall one day make all that is on it a barren plain. (8) Or dost thou think the Men of the Cave and Er-Rakeem were among Our signs a wonder? (9) Recall what time the youths betook themselves to the cave, then said: our Lord! vouchsafe unto us mercy from before Thee, and prepare for us in our affair a right course. (10) Then We smote their ears many years in the Cave. (11) And afterward We raised them up that We might know which of the two parties would best calculate the time that they had tarried. (12)
