The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Praise belongs to God who has sent down upon His servant the Book and has not assigned unto it any crookedness; (1) and which rightly directs, to give warning of stern punishment from Him, and to proclaim to the believers who do righteous deeds that they shall have an excellent recompense, (2) In which they will remain forever (3) And to warn those who say, "God has taken to Himself a son." (4) (A thing) whereof they have no knowledge, nor (had) their fathers, Dreadful is the word that cometh out of their mouths. They speak naught but a lie. (5) Then maybe you will kill yourself with grief, sorrowing after them, if they do not believe in this announcement. (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) And most surely We will make what is on it bare ground without herbage. (8) Or have you thought that the companions of the cave and the inscription were, among Our signs, a wonder? (9) When the youths sought refuge in the Cave, they said: 'Lord give us from Your Mercy and furnish us with rectitude in our affair' (10) We lulled them to sleep in that cave for a number of years (11) Then We awakened them that We might show which of the two factions was most precise in calculating what [extent] they had remained in time. (12)
