The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has sent down to His slave (Muhammad SAW) the Book (the Quran), and has 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) They will abide therein for ever. (3) Furthermore, [this divine writ is meant] to warn all those who assert, "God has taken unto Himself a son." (4) a thing about which they have no knowledge, neither they nor their ancestors. Dreadful is the word that comes out of their mouths. What they utter is merely a lie. (5) Then maybe you will kill yourself with grief, sorrowing after them, if they do not believe in this announcement. (6) Indeed, We have made that which is on the earth adornment for it that We may test them [as to] which of them is best in deed. (7) We will surely reduce all that is on it to barren dust. (8) Or, do you think that the Fellows of the Cave and the Inscription were of Our wonderful signs? (9) When those youths sought refuge in the Cave and said: "Our Lord! Grant us mercy from Yourself and provide for us rectitude in our affairs." (10) So We cast [a cover of sleep] over their ears within the cave for a number of years. (11) Then roused them to ascertain which of the two groups could account for the period they had stayed. (12)
