The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
All praise unto Allah who hath sent down unto His bondman the Book, and hath not placed therein any crookedness. (1) A just Book, to warn of Allah’s severe punishment, and to give glad tidings to the believers who do good deeds, that for them is an excellent reward. (2) and they will live for ever therein. (3) And to warn those who say “Allah has chosen a child.” (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) Perhaps you may destroy yourself with grief if they do not believe in this message. (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) For We shall certainly turn it to barren dust. (8) Or have you thought that the companions of the cave and the inscription 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) Therefore We covered up their (sense of) hearing (causing them, to go in deep sleep) in the Cave for a number of years. (11) and thereafter We revived them to find out which of the two parties could best calculate the length of their stay. (12)
