The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
ALL PRAISE BE to God who has revealed to His votary the Book which is free of all obliquity, (1) (He hath made it) Straight (and Clear) in order that He may warn (the godless) of a terrible Punishment from Him, and that He may give Glad Tidings to the Believers who work righteous deeds, that they shall have a goodly Reward, (2) In which they will remain forever (3) And that it may warn those who say: "God has begotten a son." (4) Surely, of this they have no knowledge, neither they nor their fathers; it is a monstrous word that comes from their mouths, they say nothing but a lie. (5) Yet perchance, if they do not believe in this tiding, you will consume yourself with grief and follow after them. (6) Surely We have made whatever is on the earth an embellishment for it, so that We may try them (as to) which of them is best in works. (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) (Remember) when the young men fled for refuge (from their disbelieving folk) to the Cave, they said: "Our Lord! Bestow on us mercy from Yourself, and facilitate for us our affair in the right way!" (10) Then We draw (a veil) over their ears, for a number of years, in the Cave, (so that they heard not): (11) Then We woke them up again so that We might see which of the two groups would better calculate the time they had stayed there. (12)
