So We caused them to fall into a dead sleep1 in the cave for many years, Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
then We raised them so We may show which of the two groups would make a better estimation of the length of their stay.1  Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
We relate to you ˹O Prophet˺ their story in truth. They were youths who truly believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And We strengthened their hearts when they stood up and declared, “Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. We will never call upon any god besides Him, or we would truly be uttering an outrageous lie.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﯿ
˹Then they said to one another,˺ “These people of ours have taken gods besides Him. Why do they not produce a clear proof of them? Who then does more wrong than those who fabricate lies against Allah? Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Since you have distanced yourselves from them and what they worship besides Allah, take refuge in the cave. Your Lord will extend His mercy to you and accommodate you in your ordeal.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
ﭿ
And you would have seen the sun, as it rose, inclining away from their cave to the right, and as it set, declining away from them to the left, while they lay in its open space.1 That is one of the signs of Allah. Whoever Allah guides is truly guided. But whoever He leaves to stray, you will never find for them a guiding mentor. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And you would have thought they were awake,1 though they were asleep. We turned them over, to the right and left, while their dog stretched his forelegs at the entrance. Had you looked at them, you would have certainly fled away from them, filled with horror. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
And so We awakened them so that they might question one another. One of them exclaimed, “How long have you remained ˹asleep˺?” Some replied, “Perhaps a day, or part of a day.” They said ˹to one another˺, “Your Lord knows best how long you have remained. So send one of you with these silver coins of yours to the city, and let him find which food is the purest, and then bring you provisions from it. Let him be ˹exceptionally˺ cautious, and do not let him give you away. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
For, indeed, if they find out about you, they will stone you ˹to death˺, or force you back into their faith, and then you will never succeed.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
