An open book of Quran showing the beginning of Surat al-Kahf (18:1-3)
1. 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. 2. [a divine writ] unerringly straight, meant to warn of a severe punishment from Him, and to give unto the believers who do good works the glad tiding that theirs shall be a goodly reward- 3. [a state of bliss] in which they shall dwell beyond the count of time.
