18-The Cave / Al-Kahf:

The Cave / Al-Kahf
In God’s Name, whose Mercy is Great and Continuous:

(18:1)   Praise and thank Me with devotion for sending Muhammad the truth in this book with no deviation.

(18:2)   It is a book of true guidance for living. It is a warning that my severe punishment is coming, and it delivers the good news to those who believe and do good deeds that they will have a great reward in Heaven.

(18:3)   Their life of enjoyment will be never-ending.

(18:4)   And it delivers my warning to those who say I have a son.

(18:5)   Neither they nor those who came before them know what they are saying. How terrible the lie against Me that they are uttering.

(18:6)   Oh Muhammad, your sadness for them may drive you to exhaust yourself pursuing their conversion when they respond to My message with rejection.

(18:7)   Remember, I created the earth and all of its beautiful distractions. I created it to test people, and to show them who will do good deeds and turn to Me in a state of submission,

(18:8)   but I swear a day is coming when I wipe off everything leaving only barren desolation.

(18:9)   Do you think the story of the people of the cave with its dedicating inscription is something that is, for My power, amazing?

(18:10) A group of young people took shelter in a cave saying, “Oh Lord, give us from your mercy, and guide us to improve our condition.”

(18:11) So I made them sleep for a number of years, and they could not hear anything.

(18:12) Then I woke them to show them which side knew how long they were sleeping.

(18:13) I am telling you their true story. They were a group of young people who believed in Me, and I strengthened them and guided them accordingly.

(18:14) I strengthened their hearts as they stood against their king saying, “Our God is the lord and creator of the heavens and the earth and everything. We will not call upon anyone other than Him, for to do so would be the worst treason.

(18:15) These are our people and they have taken false gods without clear evidence or reason. Is there anyone worse than those who invent against God a terrible fabrication?”

(18:16) Then they said to each other, “We should separate ourselves from them and that which, instead of God, they are worshiping. If we go to the cave, then God will give us from His mercy provision, and guide us to what benefits us in following His true religion.”

(18:17) As they slept, the sun would rise to the right of their cave’s entrance and set to its left. This is an example of my divine supervision. Those whom I guide find true guidance, and no one can guide those whom I deny my direction. 

(18:18) They looked like they were awake when they were sleeping. I turned them to the right and left, and their dog was lying at the cave’s entrance guarding. If a person would see them, I would fill their heart with terror and they would turn away running.

(18:19) And so I protected them until I woke them to respond to the question: One turned to the others asking, “How long have we been napping?” One side said, “We have slept all day or maybe less.” The other side said, “God knows how long we have been sleeping. So stop arguing and instead send someone to the city with silver coins to get the blessing of good food for eating. The person chosen should be discreet in their traveling and let no one know where we are hiding.

(18:20) If our people discover us, they will stone us or break us, and if we return to their misguided religion, we will never see Heaven.”

(18:21) In this way I had their people discover them so they would know my promise is true, and there is no doubt I can bring them back to life on the Day of Resurrection. At the time, their people were divided on this question and arguing. Then, after the youths were discovered alive in their cave, the angel of death came calling. After the youths’ passing, the people started discussing: “Let us wall them in. God knows their heart’s true condition,” said the side that had just lost the argument on the issue of resurrection, but the prevailing side said, “Instead, we will build a house for worshiping God in their honor.”

(18:22) In time people started to dispute their number. Some say, they were three, with the dog being the fourth, or five with the dog making six, ignorantly. Some say they were seven with the dog making eight. Tell them, “God and a few people know their number accurately.” Then do not argue or go asking about their number beyond what I have given.

(18:23) Instead take a lesson from this story, and do not say that you will do anything in the future

(18:24) without saying “God willing.” If you forget, then say it when you remember, and say, “May God guide me to be a better person.”

(18:25) In their cave, for three hundred and nine lunar years they were sleeping.

(18:26) Say, “God knows, after that, how long they were living, and He knows the hidden secrets in the earth and the heavens. You should know that God sees and hears everything. There is no one for you to turn to for protection other than Him. God is alone in power and authority over all things.”

(18:27) Oh Muhammad, recite and follow what I have revealed from my book to you. Its words will not be corrupted, and there is nothing other than its guidance to save you.

(18:28) Overcome temptation by staying with those who pray in the morning and evening wanting to be with Me. Do not let your eyes stray from them out of a desire for this life’s distractions of wealth, power, and money, and do not follow those whose hearts are dead to Me. They lost themselves for following their desires instead of obeying Me.

(18:29) Tell them, “God revealed the truth. Now you can either believe and submit to it humbly or reject it knowingly.” But they should know that I have prepared for the oppressive sinful people, who reject my guidance, the fire of Hell, and it will wall them in securely. If they ask for relief from its heat, they will be given water like molten metal which burns faces deeply. What a terrible drink and a horrible place to spend eternity.

(18:30) The reward for good people will not be lost, so don’t worry. Those who believe and do good deeds

(18:31) will have gardens in Heaven with streams running through them gently. They will have gold bracelets, and clothes made of fine and thick green silk that fit beautifully. Lying on canopy beds comfortably, they will have a great reward and a beautiful place to spend eternity.

(18:32) Then give them the example of the two men who were arguing. I gave one of them two vineyards with a garden in between, and a boarder of palm trees growing.

(18:33) Both vineyards produced ripe fruit in abundance, and I passed between them a stream for easy watering.

(18:34) So he was very wealthy, and one day he was bragging, “I have more money and compared to you, a much bigger family.”

(18:35) Then he unjustly entered his vineyard saying arrogantly, “I think this will last forever.

(18:36) I don’t believe in a Day of Judgment, but if I am brought back, I swear God will give me something even better.”

(18:37) His companion responded, “Why are you being arrogant and ungrateful to the one who created us from dust originally, then produced you out of some fluid, and made you strong and manly?

(18:38) As for me, God is my Lord and I will worship and obey Him only.

(18:39) When you enter your garden, why don’t you say, ‘God does what He wants, there is no power without Him.’ If you look down on me for having less wealth and children,

(18:40) then maybe God will give me something better than your garden, and God may send you a punishing storm leaving nothing but muddy destruction.

(18:41) Or God may cause your water to sink into the earth beyond your reach as He has full power over His creation. So repent before it is too late and turn to God for forgiveness in humble submission.”

(18:41) But the man didn’t listen until one day he was surrounded by the fruits of his rejection. His hands shaking in sorrow and dejection at what he spent his life building, looking out on his once beautiful vineyards with all his grapevines now broken on their trellises decaying, he started saying, “I regret my past actions, and wish it was only God that I was worshiping and obeying.”

(18:43-44) He didn’t have family or supporters who could protect him from Me, and there was nothing he could do to save his property.  The truth is I was the only one who could save him, and for those who believe in Me and repent I will reward them. But the best reward is my reward in Heaven.

(18:45) Then give them this lesson: The life of this world is like rain that falls and causes plants to grow thick with intertwined branches and leaves. Then the rain stops and the plants dry and die and scatter in the breeze. I bring life and death and have full power over this temporary world you see.

(18:46) Wealth and children are some of the passing enjoyments of life, but what stays with you are your good deeds. They are more rewarding, and a better investment for the future to put your hopes in.

(18:47) On the day the mountains blow away, and the earth is extended forever in every direction, on that day I will gather everyone without missing anyone,

(18:48) and they will be presented to Me in organized formations. I will say to them, “You have been brought to Me as I created you in the beginning, and some of you claimed that I would not bring you back for this appointed meeting.”

(18:49) Then the books are opened, and the criminals will be terrified saying, “Oh my God, no matter how small or big, this book documents everything we spent our life doing.” They will see everything they did recorded in writing. I am perfectly just, and only punish people for their wrongdoing.

(18:50) “Remember, when I gave the command to bow to Adam respectfully, the angels did and Iblees, the devil, didn’t arrogantly. He was from the race of jinn, so he disobeyed Me. How could you turn to him and his children for support and protection when he is your enemy? What a terrible replacement you made to chose the devils over Me.

(18:51) Were they there when I created the earth and the heavens? Did I let them witness their own creation? I didn’t need the help of misguiding devils, so why would you listen to them instead of Me for your life’s decisions?”

(18:52) On that day, I will say, “Call those whom, besides Me, you worshiped and obeyed.” Then they will call to them for help, but none will answer, and I will place between them a barrier. Then they will give up hope in getting help from them.

(18:53) The criminals will see Hell and know that they will fall in, and they will not find a place to run to that will save them.

(18:54) I have given in this book many clear parables and stories to learn from, but people are very argumentative for no reason.

(18:55) All that is preventing them from believing and asking Me for forgiveness, is seeing the devastating punishment that I sent to those before them, or maybe they are waiting to see the various punishments that await them on the Day of Resurrection. 

(18:56) My messengers are sent only to deliver my good news and warning. Those who reject my message throw baseless arguments to try to take down the Truth, and then dare to make fun of my message and warning.

(18:57) Is there anyone worse than the person who is reminded of Me through my revelation or creation, and then turns away arrogantly, forgetting what they are taking with them to the Day of Resurrection? For this, I place a seal on their hearts as punishment which prevents them from understanding. In their ears is a block which prevents them from hearing. If you call them to the truth when they are in this condition, they will never listen because they refuse to turn to Me in humble submission.

(18:58) I am very merciful and forgiving, and I am giving them time to turn to Me repenting. They deserve to be punished immediately, but I have given them a fixed appointment that they will not be escaping.

(18:59) I punished previous communities for their unjust rejection, and they too had a fixed appointment for their destruction.

(18:60) Those who seek knowledge should remember the story when Moses went searching. Moses said to his assistant, “I will travel forever if I have to, until I reach the place where the two seas are meeting.”

(18:61) When they reached the general location, they forgot about the fish they were carrying. The fish came to life and started jumping until it found the water, then shot through it swimming.

(18:62) So they kept traveling and the next morning, Moses said, “Bring us our breakfast, this trip has been exhausting.”

(18:63) The assistant said, “Remember when we stopped at the rock yesterday resting? I forgot that I saw something astonishing, and it was the devil’s distractions that made me forget to tell you: The fish came to life and swam away. It was amazing!”  

(18:64) Moses said, “That was the sign for which we have been looking.” So they retraced their steps carefully,

(18:65) and found a good man who worships and obeys Me. I had given him from my merciful guidance and taught him from my knowledge plenty.

(18:66) “May I follow you so that you may teach me from what you were taught that is good and true?” Moses said asking.

(18:67) The man answered, “You lack the patience to come with me traveling,

(18:68) and how can you be patient with what looks like evil when you lack the knowledge and insight to know its true meaning?”

(18:69) Moses said, “You will find me patient, God willing, and I will not disobey any command you give me.”

(18:70) He said, “Then don’t ask me about anything I do, until I bring it up to you. This is my rule if you are going to follow me.”

(18:71) So they took off, and when they came aboard the boat that offered to give them a ride, the good man damaged its side. Moses said, “Did you damage the boat to drown its owners inside? How could you respond to their kindness so terribly?” 

(18:72) He responded, “Didn’t I say you lacked the patience to be with me?”

(18:73) Moses said, “Don’t hold me accountable for what I forgot, and take it easy on me.”

(18:74) So they took off, and when they met a young man, the good man killed him immediately. Moses said, “How could you kill an innocent person intentionally? This young man had not committed murder, and you have done something unbelievably horrible!”

(18:75) He responded, “Didn’t I tell you, you lacked the patience to be with me?”

(18:76) Moses said, “If I ask you about anything after this, don’t let me follow you, because you have received enough excuses from me.”

(18:77) So they took off quickly, and when they reached a village hungry, they asked its people if they would be charitable, but the people refused to be hospitable. Then they found a wall about to collapse, and the good man repaired it. Moses said, “If you wanted, you could have asked for food as payment.”

(18:78) The man said, “This is where we part ways. For all that you were not patient, I will tell you the explanation today.”

(18:79) The boat belonged to some poor defenseless fisherman who used it as a ferry to make a small living. So I wanted to give the boat a defect because a king was coming to forcefully take every sound ship without paying.

(18:80) As for the young man, his parents were believers and good people, and I didn’t want them overwhelmed because he was unjust, oppressive, and ungrateful.

(18:81) On God’s authority, I acted so God would replace him with someone better: A child who will take good care of them and submit to God as a believer.

(18:82) As for the wall, there were two orphans in the village and it belonged to them. Under the wall was a treasure left for them, and their father was a good person. So God wanted them to grow up and retrieve it as a mercy from Him. I did all of this only on His direction. For all that you were not patient, that is the explanation.”

(18:83) Oh Muhammad, they ask you about the king with two horns. Tell them, I will recite to you some of his story:

(18:84) God established him in the land and gave him from every resource plenty.

(18:85) So he followed a path westerly.

(18:86) He kept going until he reached where it looked like the sun was setting in a black hot spring. In the area he found a people living. He had to decide whether to attack them or treat them kindly.

(18:87) He said, “Those who are oppressive will be punished, and then they will return to God to be punished severely.

(18:88) As for those who believe and do good deeds, they will have a great reward in heaven and my rule over them will be easy.”

(18:89) Then he followed a path eastwardly.

(18:90) He kept going until he reached as far as he could go where the sun rose on a primitive people lacking clothes or homes for shelter.

(18:91) So he treated them accordingly, and God knew when He gave him power what a good king he would be.

(18:92) Then he followed a different path

(18:93) until he reached a land on one side of a mountain pass and a people who could understand him barely.

(18:94) They complained to him, “Through the pass, Gog and Magog are invading and destroying our land regularly. May we pay you a tax to get your protection, and have you build a barrier between us and them?”

(18:95) He said, “What God has given me is enough for me. Help me build between you and them a wall of separation.

(18:96) And get me ore of iron. Then when he evenly built the two side towers, he told them to blow on the fires. Then when the iron was burning, he said bring me bronze to start pouring.

(18:97) When they were done building it, their enemies were not able to climb or break through it.

(18:98) He said, “This is from God’s mercy and He promises, in time, to take it down. God’s promise is true, and when the time comes it will fall to the ground.”

(18:99) In the last days, all barriers will crumble, and I will allow the waves of humanity to crash into each other. Then the horn will be blown to gather you all together.

(18:100) On that day, those who reject my message will have Hell presented to them clearly.

(18:101) They are the ones whose arrogance in life covered their eyes and blocked their ears completely. Their condition prevented them from seeing Me through my creation, or hearing my revelation.

(18:102) Do they think the hard work they put into worshiping my creation will have no consequences on the Day of Resurrection? I have prepared a room in Hell for them to rest in.

(18:103) Tell them: Should I tell you who the real losers are in the end?

(18:104) They think they are doing good in life, but all they take with them is sin. 

(18: 18:105) They reject my message and warning, and don’t believe they will stand in front of Me on the Day of Resurrection, so I will not give their good deeds any weight or consideration. 

(18:106) Their reward will be Hell for rejecting and making fun of my book and the messengers I sent them,

(18:107) but those who believe sincerely and do good deeds regularly, will have waiting for them beautiful gardens, vineyards, and orchards to rest in.

(18:108) They will never want to leave as they enjoy themselves for eternity in Heaven.

(18:109) Oh Muhammad, tell those who want to learn, “If you tried to write God’s knowledge with as much ink as the ocean, even with twice that in ink you would run out before reaching completion.”

(18:110) Tell them, “I am just a man from among you, except that I have been chosen to share something with you: That your God is the one and only. Whoever is looking forward to meet their Lord happy, should do good deeds and worship and obey Him only.” 


CHAPTER NOTES:

Overview: It is encouraged to read this chapter regularly and particularly on Fridays. There are many narrations that encourage reading this chapter including, “Whoever reads The Cave chapter on Friday, will have light to light his way until the next Friday.” According to other narrations attributed to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, reading the first and the last ten verses of this chapter are a protection from the Dajjal. The Dajjal is the figure commonly referred to in English as the “Anti-Christ” who comes at the end of time as a major test for believers. When the Anti-Christ uses powerful tricks to get people to think he is a god, the last verse affirms the essential belief of Islam that there is only one God. When the Anti-Christ persecutes believers and puts them through extreme hardship and temptation, the tenth verse provides direction that they should find someplace to escape to with their religion.

Verse 21: When the youths went to sleep, their people were persecuting them for their faith in God. When they woke up three hundred years later, the people of that generation were arguing about whether God could really bring the dead back to life. When one of the youths went and tried to buy food, the merchants realized the money was hundreds of years old. They questioned the youth, and the story of what happened was discovered. So the people were lead back to the cave with the other youths who were waiting for their companion to return with the food. Shortly thereafter, the youths passed away.

The discovery of the youths’ story ended the dispute amongst their people about the Day of Resurrection. The people realized that if God can miraculously keep people asleep for that many years and bring them back, then God has the power to bring people back to life after death. The verses give the impression that the side that lost the argument about God’s power to resurrect us was unhappy about it and wanted to wall the youth’s into the cave to forget about them after they died. The believers who prevailed on the issue decided to build a place of prayer and worship near the cave’s entrance to honor and remember the faith and belief of the youths, and how God miraculously protected them.

Verse 23: The understanding of this verse presented in the text is how it can be understood within the context of the verses that come before it and after it. In addition, it is related that when the Prophet Muhammad, was asked about the story of the youths in the cave, he said he would tell the story the following day without saying “God willing.” So Angel Gabriel stopped coming to him for a time which was very embarrassing and hard on Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Then this verse was revealed. Several lessons came out of this incident including: 1- Showing that Prophet Muhammad was not making up the Quran, and he did have control over when revelation came. 2- God’s Messenger can make human mistakes and forgets like the rest of us, and what we should do when we forget.   

Verse 50: For more on the Jinn, see the chapter notes for the chapter titled The Jinn.

Verse 79-82: The teacher in this story is also called “Al-Khidr.” This story is meant to teach us that God does things we may not understand due to our limited knowledge, but there is always a higher purpose. In all three incidents, God could have accomplished the same outcome with a “natural” event. So for example, God could have damaged the boat with a sudden storm as a means of saving its poor owners in the long term, and God could have caused the young man to drop dead from a heart attack as a means of replacing him with a child that would take good care of the parents. However, in these three incidents, God chose to act through Al-Khidr as a means of teaching Moses, and all those who read these verses.

Another important lesson in the third story is the impact of the parent child relationship. Because the father of the two orphans was a good person, God’s mercy extended to the father’s children after the father’s passing to protect and take care of them financially. So being a good person is the best inheritance you can leave for your children.

There are many other lessons to learn from this story and the rest of this chapter which come from multiple readings. This is why it is encouraged to read and contemplate this chapter once a week.  

Verse 86: There are two valid readings (Qira’at) for this verse. In one, the water is described as being like black mud. In the other reading, it is described as being hot. So the two readings were combined together in the text above. 

If translated literally, this verse says that he found the sun setting “in” a black hot spring. Some have criticized the Quran for this claiming that, when understood literally and in isolation, this verse suggests a flat planet. This criticism is easily dismissed because the descriptive style throughout the Quran, from the stages of fetal development to the sky and universe above us, is to identify and describe things based on how they appear visually from the human perspective. This descriptive style is a form of eloquence because it communicates complex ideas with an economy of words. It also allows the Quran to be understood by everybody no matter their level of scientific education. If the verse is referencing the Black Sea, those who have stood at the edge of a large body of water at sunrise or sunset will appreciate the beauty and eloquence of the Quranic description. The water appears back, the mist makes it look hot, and the sun looks like it is setting in it on the horizon.

Verses 83 to 98: The identity and story of the king and Gog and Magog have been the subject of much dispute and speculation. The best that can be said on this topic is as follows: A major theme throughout this chapter of the Quran is to teach us to recognize the limitations of our knowledge. This theme started in the beginning of the chapter with the story of the youths in the cave. Then it continued with the story of Moses and his travels. Then there are these verses, and finally the concluding two verses of the chapter. To emphasis this point, in these verses the language of the Quran eloquently provides just enough detail to clearly convey some important lessons. Beyond that, the language is intentionally vague and open to any number of interpretations without knowledge external to the Quran.

The main lesson of the story is found in verse 98. This king uses all of his power and the best technology available at the time to erect a defensive wall between two natural barriers to protect some oppressed people he could hardly talk to. Then he recognizes that what he created is from God’s mercy and will last only for a period of time.

In ancient times, working with iron was difficult and resource intensive. First, it required collecting a large quantity of charcoal and iron ore. The two were put into small furnaces we call bloomerys and then air was blown in to heat the furnace. Carbon would then fuse with the iron oxides to produce a wrought iron ball at the bottom of the furnace called a “bloom.” The bloom then had to be repeatedly heated and beaten by men with hammers to produce wrought iron bars.

The Quran uses a word that is normally understood as “copper.” However, in classical Arabic it is normal to call something by the majority of what it is. It is unlikely that pure copper was used, except for possibly decorative purposes, because it is a soft metal. More likely, copper was mixed with other additives to produce bronze which is harder and fairly weather resistant. The bronze was probably used in a brazing technique to join the wrought iron bars together to form a gate. It could also have been used as a coating for decoration or weather resistance purposes. The rest of the wall fortifications including defensive towers were probably built out of stone or brick. Of all the interpretations of these verses, this one is the most consistent with our knowledge of ancient metallurgy, archeology, wall building in antiquity, common sense use of precious resources, and military strategy.

The most popular modern theory is that the King with Two Horns refers to Cyrus the Great who was the king over the people of Media and Persia. According to this theory, the body of water referred to in the Quran is the Black Sea, and the walled fortifications were built to block northern invaders from coming through strategic passageways through the Caucasus Mountains. In fact, defensive walls were built and rebuilt at these strategic points over the centuries although it is impossible to determine for certain who built the original foundations. According to this theory, Gog and Magog refer loosely to central Asian peoples who would regularly invade through the pass between the Caucasus Mountains.

Obviously, there is no wall made of stone and iron from ancient times holding back any invasions today. Physical walls have been replaced with strategic balances of power and government systems. The final point of the story is that, before the end of the human story on earth, all walls between people and nations will come crashing down. In the end, system and order breaks down completely and human beings mindlessly destroy each other like waves crashing into each other. It is at this moment, when humans have lost the last of their humanity, that the Day of Judgment begins.
