The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the 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) wherein they shall abide for ever; (3) And to warn those who say “Allah has chosen a child.” (4) They have no knowledge of this, as their fathers did not have. How terrible are the words they utter! They speak nothing but lies. (5) Yet perchance, if they believe not in this tiding, thou wilt consume thyself, following after them, of grief. (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 We shall surely make all that is on it barren dust. (8) Did you know that the People of the Cave and People close to the Woods, were Our exceptional signs? (9) When those young men took shelter in the cave, and prayed: "O Lord, grant us Your favour and dispose our affair aright," (10) We sealed off their ears in the cave for a number of years, (11) And afterward We raised them up that We might know which of the two parties would best calculate the time that they had tarried. (12)
