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 praise is to Allah Who sent down the Book upon His bondman, and has not kept any deviation in it. (1) [a divine writ] unerringly straight, meant to warn [the godless] of a severe punishment from Him, and to give unto the believers who do good works the glad tiding that theirs shall be a goodly reward (2) In which they will remain forever (3) And to warn those who say “Allah has chosen a child.” (4) they have no knowledge of it, they nor their fathers; a monstrous word it is, issuing out of their mouths; they say nothing but a lie. (5) Perhaps you will destroy yourself out of grief because they disbelieve this Book. (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, verily, [in time] We shall reduce all that is on it to barren dust! (8) Or dost thou reflect that the Companions of the Cave and of the Inscription were wonders among Our Sign? (9) When the youths sought refuge in the cave, they said: Our Lord! grant us mercy from Thee, and provide for us a right course in our affair. (10) Then We sealed up their hearing in 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)
