The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
ALL PRAISE BE to God who has revealed to His votary the Book which is free of all obliquity, (1) [He has made it] straight, to warn of severe punishment from Him and to give good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a good reward (2) Wherein they will abide for ever; (3) And that it may warn those who say: God hath taken 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) Perhaps, you, would kill yourself (O Muhammad SAW) in grief, over their footsteps (for their turning away from you), because they believe not in this narration (the Quran). (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) We will surely reduce all that is on it to barren dust. (8) Do you think that the people of the Cave and the Inscription were one of Our wondrous signs? (9) When the youth sought refuge in the cave they prayed "Lord, grant us mercy and help us to get out of this trouble in a righteous way". (10) We then thumped upon their ears in the Cave for a number of years. (* Put them to sleep.) (11) and thereafter We revived them to find out which of the two parties could best calculate the length of their stay. (12)
