Quran 18: 9-26 mentions the narrative of the Companions of the Cave. The exact number of hours of sleep has not been determined. The Qur’an also mentions that soon after the tragedy, individuals began to “carelessly guess” how many people were in the cave. According to the Qur’an, “My helper knows how many there were.” Similarly, after ensuring that people imagined that they “stayed in the cave 300 years and added nine,” the Qur’an declares that “God knows how long they stayed there.”
The “Cave of the Dormouse” has been assigned to several localities, although none have been archaeologically established to be the true site. Since the initial versions of the tale spread from Ephesus, they have been linked to early Christian catacombs, which drew large crowds of pilgrims.
In 1926-1928, the Cave of the Dormouse was unearthed along with the ruins of the holy structure built over it on the slopes of Mount Pune (Mount Gulian) near Ephesus (near present-day Selcuk in Turkey). Several hundred graves from the fifth and sixth century have been discovered during excavations. Inscriptions honouring the Seven Sleeping Ones were discovered on the walls and in the tombs. Tourists can still visit this cave.
