The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Praise be to Allah, Who hath sent to His Servant the Book, and hath allowed therein no Crookedness: (1) unswerving. To warn of great violence from Him, and to give good tidings to the believers who do good deeds that theirs shall be a goodly wage (2) wherein they shall remain forever, (3) Furthermore, [this divine writ is meant] to warn all those who assert, "God has taken unto Himself a son." (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) Yet perchance, if they believe not in this tiding, thou wilt consume thyself, following after them, of grief. (6) Surely We have made all that is on the earth an embellishment for it in order to test people as to who of them is better in conduct. (7) Verily what is on earth we shall make but as dust and dry soil (without growth or herbage). (8) Do you not think that the story of the Companions of the Cave and the Inscription was one of Our marvelous miracles? (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) We sealed off their ears in the cave for a number of years, (11) and then We awakened them: [and We did all this] so that We might mark out [to the world] which of the two points of view showed a better comprehension of the time-span during which they had remained in this state. (12)
