The Cave (Al-Kahf)
110 verses, revealed in Mecca after Overwhelming (Al-Ghaasheyah) before The Bee (Al-nahl)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
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) [a state of bliss] in which they shall dwell beyond the count of time. (3) and admonish those who say that God has begotten a son. (4) They do not have any knowledge of it nor did their forefathers; profound is the word that comes out of their mouths; they only speak a lie. (5) Haply thou art going to kill thyself over their footsteps, if they believe not in this discourse, out of sorrow. (6) We have appointed all that is on the earth an adornment for it, in order that We try which of them is finest in works. (7) For We shall certainly turn it to barren dust. (8) Or deemest thou that the People of the Cave and the Inscription are a wonder among Our portents? (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) And thereupon We veiled their ears in the cave for many a year, (11) And afterward We raised them up that We might know which of the two parties would best calculate the time that they had tarried.
