The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
ALL PRAISE is due to God, who has bestowed this divine writ from on high upon His servant, and has not allowed any deviousness to obscure its meaning: (1) an unerringly Straight Book, meant to warn of a stern punishment from Allah, and to proclaim, to those who believe and work righteous deeds, the tiding that theirs shall be a good reward (2) They will abide therein for ever. (3) And that it may warn those who say: "God has begotten a son." (4) No knowledge thereof have they, nor had their fathers. Odious is the word that cometh out of their mouths; they say not but a lie. (5) Perhaps you may destroy yourself with grief if they do not believe in this message. (6) That which is on earth we have made but as a glittering show for the earth, in order that We may test them - as to which of them are best in conduct. (7) We will surely reduce all that is on it to barren dust. (8) Or deemest thou that the People of the Cave and the Inscription are a wonder among Our portents? (9) When those youths took refuge in the cave, they prayed: "O our Sustainer! Bestow on us grace from Thyself, and endow us, whatever our [outward] condition, with consciousness of what is right!" (10) Wherefore We put a covering over their ears in the cave for a number of years. (11) Then We roused them, in order to test which of the two parties was best at calculating the term of years they had tarried! (12)
