The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, 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) A just Book, to warn of Allah’s severe punishment, and to give glad tidings to the believers who do good deeds, that for them is an excellent reward. (2) wherein they will remain [in a state of bliss] forever. (3) Furthermore, [this divine writ is meant] to warn all those who assert, "God has taken unto 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) Will you kill yourself for grief of them if they do not believe in this presentation? (6) We have made whatever exists on the earth its adornment to test and try them (and) know who acts better; (7) but We shall reduce all this to barren waste. (8) Did you know that the People of the Cave and People close to the Woods, were Our exceptional signs? (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) Then We smote their ears many years in the Cave. (11) We then awakened them to see which of the two groups more accurately tells the period they had stayed. (12)
