اِذۡ اَوَی الۡفِتۡیَۃُ اِلَی الۡکَہۡفِ فَقَالُوۡا رَبَّنَاۤ اٰتِنَا مِنۡ لَّدُنۡکَ رَحۡمَۃً وَّ ہَیِّیٔۡ لَنَا مِنۡ اَمۡرِنَا رَشَدًا ﴿۱۰﴾

“When the youths sought refuge in the CAVE, they said: Our Lord, grant us mercy from Thyself, and provide for us a right course in our affair” (The Holy Quran, 18:10).
