Arabic: وَتَحْسَبُهُمْ أَيْقَاظًا وَهُمْ رُقُودٌ وَنُقَلِّبُهُمْ ذَاتَ الْيَمِينِ وَذَاتَ الشِّمَالِ وَكَلْبُهُم بَاسِطٌ ذِرَاعَيْهِ بِالْوَصِيدِ لَوِ اطَّلَعْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ لَوَلَّيْتَ مِنْهُمْ فِرَارًا وَلَمُلِئْتَ مِنْهُمْ رُعْبًا
Pickthal: And thou wouldst have deemed them waking though they were asleep, and We caused them to turn over to the right and the left, andtheir dog stretching out his paws on the threshold. If thou hadst observedthem closely thou hadst assuredly turned away from them in flight, andhadst been filled with awe of them.
Shakir: And you might think them awake while they were asleep and We turned them about to the right and to the left, while their dog (lay) outstretching its paws at the entrance; if you looked at them you would certainly turn back from them in flight, and you would certainly be filled with awe because of them.
Yusuf Ali: Thou wouldst have deemed them awake, whilst they were asleep, and We turned them on their right and on their left sides: their dogstretching forth his two fore-legs on the threshold: if thou hadst come upon to them, thou wouldst have certainly turned back from them in flight,and wouldst certainly have been filled with terror of them.

Ayah: 19
Arabic: وَكَذَلِكَ بَعَثْنَاهُمْ لِيَتَسَاءلُوا بَيْنَهُمْ قَالَ قَائِلٌ مِّنْهُمْ كَمْ لَبِثْتُمْ قَالُوا لَبِثْنَا يَوْمًا أَوْ بَعْضَ يَوْمٍ قَالُوا رَبُّكُمْ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا لَبِثْتُمْ فَابْعَثُوا أَحَدَكُم بِوَرِقِكُمْ هَذِهِ إِلَى الْمَدِينَةِ فَلْيَنظُرْ أَيُّهَا أَزْكَى طَعَامًا فَلْيَأْتِكُم بِرِزْقٍ مِّنْهُ وَلْيَتَلَطَّفْ وَلَا يُشْعِرَنَّ بِكُمْ أَحَدًا
Pickthal: And in like manner We awakened them that they might question one another. A speaker from among them said: How long have ye tarried? Theysaid: We have tarried a day or some part of a day, (Others) said: YourLord best knoweth what ye have tarried. Now send one of you with this yoursilver coin unto the city, and let him see what food is purest there andbring you a supply thereof. Let him be courteous and let no man know ofyou.
Shakir: And thus did We rouse them that they might question each other. A speaker among them said: How long have you tarried? They said: We have tarried for a day or a part of a day. (Others) said: Your Lord knows best how long you have tarried. Now send one of you with this silver (coin) of yours to the city, then let him see which of them has purest food, so let him bring you provision from it, and let him behave with gentleness, and by no means make your case known to any one:
Yusuf Ali: Such (being their state), we raised them up (from sleep), that they might question each other. Said one of them, "How long have ye stayed(here)?" They said, "We have stayed (perhaps) a day, or part of a day." (Atlength) they (all) said, "Allah (alone) knows best how long ye have stayedhere.... Now send ye then one of you with this money of yours to the town:let him find out which is the best food (to be had) and bring some to you,that (ye may) satisfy your hunger therewith: And let him behave with careand courtesy, and let him not inform any one about you.

Ayah: 20
Arabic: إِنَّهُمْ إِن يَظْهَرُوا عَلَيْكُمْ يَرْجُمُوكُمْ أَوْ يُعِيدُوكُمْ فِي مِلَّتِهِمْ وَلَن تُفْلِحُوا إِذًا أَبَدًا
Pickthal: For they, if they should come to know of you, will stone you or turn you back to their religion; then ye will never prosper.
Shakir: For surely if they prevail against you they would stone you to death or force you back to their religion, and then you will never succeed.
Yusuf Ali: "For if they should come upon you, they would stone you or force you to return to their cult, and in that case ye would never attainprosperity."

Ayah: 21
Arabic: وَكَذَلِكَ أَعْثَرْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ لِيَعْلَمُوا أَنَّ وَعْدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ وَأَنَّ السَّاعَةَ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهَا إِذْ يَتَنَازَعُونَ بَيْنَهُمْ أَمْرَهُمْ فَقَالُوا ابْنُوا عَلَيْهِم بُنْيَانًا رَّبُّهُمْ أَعْلَمُ بِهِمْ قَالَ الَّذِينَ غَلَبُوا عَلَى أَمْرِهِمْ لَنَتَّخِذَنَّ عَلَيْهِم مَّسْجِدًا
Pickthal: And in like manner We disclosed them (to the people of the city) that they might know that the promise of Allah is true, and that, asfor the Hour, there is no doubt concerning it. When (the people of thecity) disputed of their case among themselves, they said: Build over them abuilding; their Lord knoweth best concerning them. Those who won theirpoint said: We verily shall build a place of worship over them.
Shakir: And thus did We make (men) to get knowledge of them that they might know that Allah's promise is true and that as for the hour there is no doubt about it. When they disputed among themselves about their affair and said: Erect an edifice over them-- their Lord best knows them. Those who prevailed in their affair said: We will certainly raise a masjid over them.
Yusuf Ali: Thus did We make their case known to the people, that they might know that the promise of Allah is true, and that there can be no doubtabout the Hour of Judgment. Behold, they dispute among themselves as totheir affair. (Some) said, "Construct a building over them": Their Lordknows best about them: those who prevailed over their affair said, "Let ussurely build a place of worship over them."

Ayah: 22
Arabic: سَيَقُولُونَ ثَلَاثَةٌ رَّابِعُهُمْ كَلْبُهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ خَمْسَةٌ سَادِسُهُمْ كَلْبُهُمْ رَجْمًا بِالْغَيْبِ وَيَقُولُونَ سَبْعَةٌ وَثَامِنُهُمْ كَلْبُهُمْ قُل رَّبِّي أَعْلَمُ بِعِدَّتِهِم مَّا يَعْلَمُهُمْ إِلَّا قَلِيلٌ فَلَا تُمَارِ فِيهِمْ إِلَّا مِرَاء ظَاهِرًا وَلَا تَسْتَفْتِ فِيهِم مِّنْهُمْ أَحَدًا
Pickthal: (Some) will say: They were three, their dog the fourth, and (some) say: Five, their dog the sixth, guessing at random; and (some) say:Seven, and their dog the eighth. Say (O Muhammad): My Lord is Best Aware oftheir number. None knoweth them save a few. So contend not concerning themexcept with an outward contending, and ask not any of them to pronounceconcerning them.
Shakir: (Some) say: (They are) three, the fourth of them being their dog; and (others) say: Five, the sixth of them being their dog, making conjectures at what is unknown; and (others yet) say: Seven, and the eighth of them is their dog. Say: My Lord best knows their number, none knows them but a few; therefore contend not in the matter of them but with an outward contention, and do not question concerning them any of them.
Yusuf Ali: (Some) say they were three, the dog being the fourth among them; (others) say they were five, the dog being the sixth,- doubtfullyguessing at the unknown; (yet others) say they were seven, the dog beingthe eighth. Say thou: "My Lord knoweth best their number; It is but fewthat know their (real case)." Enter not, therefore, into controversiesconcerning them, except on a matter that is clear, nor consult any of themabout (the affair of) the Sleepers.

Ayah: 23
Arabic: وَلَا تَقُولَنَّ لِشَيْءٍ إِنِّي فَاعِلٌ ذَلِكَ غَدًا
Pickthal: And say not of anything: Lo! I shall do that tomorrow,
Shakir: And do not say of anything: Surely I will do it tomorrow,
Yusuf Ali: Nor say of anything, "I shall be sure to do so and so tomorrow"-

Ayah: 24
Arabic: إِلَّا أَن يَشَاء اللَّهُ وَاذْكُر رَّبَّكَ إِذَا نَسِيتَ وَقُلْ عَسَى أَن يَهْدِيَنِ رَبِّي لِأَقْرَبَ مِنْ هَذَا رَشَدًا
Pickthal: Except if Allah will. And remember thy Lord when thou forgettest, and say: It may be that my Lord guideth me unto a nearer way oftruth than this.
Shakir: Unless Allah pleases; and remember your Lord when you forget and say: Maybe my Lord will guide me to a nearer course to the right than this.
Yusuf Ali: Without adding, "So please Allah!" and call thy Lord to mind when thou forgettest, and say, "I hope that my Lord will guide me evercloser (even) than this to the right road."

Ayah: 25
Arabic: وَلَبِثُوا فِي كَهْفِهِمْ ثَلَاثَ مِائَةٍ سِنِينَ وَازْدَادُوا تِسْعًا

Pickthal: Say: Allah is Best Aware how long they tarried. His is the Invisible of the heavens and the earth. How clear of sight is He and keenof hearing! They have no protecting friend beside Him, and He maketh noneto share in His government.
Shakir: Say: Allah knows best how long they remained; to Him are (known) the unseen things of the heavens and the earth; how clear His sight and how clear His hearing! There is none to be a guardian for them besides Him, and He does not make any one His associate in His Judgment.
Yusuf Ali: Say: "Allah knows best how long they stayed: with Him is (the knowledge of) the secrets of the heavens and the earth: how clearly Hesees, how finely He hears (everything)! They have no protector other thanHim; nor does He share His Command with any person whatsoever.

Ayah: 27
Arabic: وَاتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِن كِتَابِ رَبِّكَ لَا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَاتِهِ وَلَن تَجِدَ مِن دُونِهِ مُلْتَحَدًا
Pickthal: And recite that which hath been revealed unto thee of the Scripture of thy Lord. There is none who can change His words, and thouwilt find no refuge beside Him.
Shakir: And recite what has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord, there is none who can alter His words; and you shall not find any refuge besides Him.

Pickthal: Those are they who disbelieve in the revelations of their Lord and in the meeting with Him. Therefor their works are vain, and on the Dayof Resurrection We assign no weight to them.
Shakir: These are they who disbelieve in the communications of their Lord and His meeting, so their deeds become null, and therefore We will not set up a balance for them on the day of resurrection.

Pickthal: Say: Though the sea became ink for the Words of my Lord, verily the sea would be used up before the words of my Lord were exhausted,even though We brought the like thereof to help.
Shakir: Say: If the sea were ink for the words of my Lord, the sea would surely be consumed before the words of my Lord are exhausted, though We were to bring the like of that (sea) to add
