Summary of the story of the Companions of the Cave

The story of the Companions of the Cave, which was mentioned in Surat Al-Kahf, deals with a number of young men who believed in God Almighty, but they were among an unbelieving people. Prepared to be valid for a number of years.

The cave was spacious, and the sun did not enter it when it rises and sets because its door is from the north, and during the period of their sleep, God Almighty, with His power, would turn them on their right and left sides so that their bodies would not wear out from the earth, and they stayed in this cave for 300 years (309 lunar years), and their dog was guarding them. He stretched out his arms, making the viewer think that they were alive.

God Almighty awakened the Companions of the Cave after their long sleep, and the people knew that God Almighty is able to resurrect people on the Day of Resurrection as He resurrected the Companions of the Cave after their long sleep. The opinion prevailed that they build a mosque on it.
