The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Praise be to Allah Who hath revealed the Scripture unto His slave, and hath not placed therein any crookedness, (1) Immutable, so that it may warn of a severe punishment from Him; and give happy tidings to those who believe and do the right that there is a better reward (of Paradise) for them, (2) Wherein they will abide 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) whereof they have no knowledge, nor (had) their fathers, Dreadful is the word that cometh out of their mouths. They speak naught but a lie. (5) Yet perchance, if they do not believe in this tiding, you will consume yourself with grief and follow after them. (6) Behold, We have willed that all beauty on earth be a means by which We put men to a test, [showing] which of them are best in conduct; (7) For We shall certainly turn it to barren dust. (8) Did you know that the People of the Cave and People close to the Woods, were Our exceptional signs? (9) Behold, the youths betook themselves to the Cave: they said, "Our Lord! bestow on us Mercy from Thyself, and dispose of our affair for us in the right way!" (10) Therefore We covered up their (sense of) hearing (causing them, to go in deep sleep) in the Cave for a number of years. (11) Afterwards. We raised them up again, that We might know which of the two parties would better calculate the while they had tarried. (12)
