The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the 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) Rightly directing, that he might give warning of severe punishment from Him and give good news to the believers who do good that they shall have a goodly reward, (2) and they will live for ever therein. (3) And to warn those who say, "Allah has taken a son." (4) Neither they nor their fathers had any knowledge of such utterance (that God has begotten a son). Whatever they say about (this matter) is vicious blasphemy and plain lies. (5) Then maybe you will kill yourself with grief, sorrowing after them, if they do not believe in this announcement. (6) We have made whatever exists on the earth its adornment to test and try them (and) know who acts better; (7) And verily We are going to make whatsoever is thereon a soil bare. (8) Or have you thought that the companions of the cave and the inscription were, among Our signs, a wonder? (9) When the youths took refuge in the Cave saying, 'Our lord, give us mercy from Thee, and furnish us with rectitude in our affair.' (10) So We prevented them from hearing in the cave for a number of years. (11) Then We raised them up (from their sleep), that We might test which of the two parties was best at calculating the time period that they had tarried. (12)
