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
All praise is to Allah Who sent down the Book upon His bondman, and has not kept any deviation in it. (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) wherein they will remain [in a state of bliss] forever. (3) and also to warn those who say: "Allah has taken to Himself a son," (4) No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. Mighty is the word that comes out of their mouths [i.e. He begot (took) sons and daughters]. They utter nothing but a lie. (5) (O Muhammad), if they do not believe in this Message, you will perhaps torment yourself to death with grief, sorrowing over them. (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) And verily! We shall make all that is on it (the earth) a bare dry soil (without any vegetation or trees, etc.). (8) [AND SINCE the life of this world is but a test, dost thou [really] think that [the parable of] the Men of the Cave and of [their devotion to] the scriptures could be deemed more wondrous than any [other] of Our messages? (9) When the young men took refuge in the Cave then said, “Our Lord! Give us mercy from Yourself, and arrange guidance for us in our affair.” (10) We sealed off their ears 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)
