(Some) say: (They are) three, the fourth of them being their dog; and (others) say: Five, the sixth of them being their dog, making conjectures at what is unknown; and (others yet) say: Seven, and the eighth of them is their dog. Say: My Lord best knows their number, none knows them but a few; therefore contend not in the matter of them but with an outward contention, and do not question concerning them any of them.

(With regard to the number of the youths) some say, “There were three and the dog was the fourth one,” Others say, “There were five and the dog was the sixth one.” In reality, they are just feeling around in the dark. Still some of them say, “There were seven and the dog was the eighth one.” (Muhammad), say, “My Lord has the best knowledge of their number. You know very little about it.” Do not insist on arguing with them, but merely tell them the story as it has been revealed to you and do not ask anyone about them.

They will say there were three, the fourth of them being their dog; and they will say there were five, the sixth of them being their dog – guessing at the unseen; and they will say there were seven, and the eighth of them was their dog. Say, [O Muhammad], “My Lord is most knowing of their number. None knows them except a few. So do not argue about them except with an obvious argument and do not inquire about them among [the speculators] from anyone.”

They will say, ‘[They are] three; their dog is the fourth of them,’ and say, ‘[They are] five, their dog is the sixth of them,’ taking a shot at the invisible. They will say, ‘[They are] seven, their dog is the eighth of them.’ Say, ‘My Lord knows best their number, and none knows them except a few.’ So do not dispute concerning them, except for a seeming dispute, and do not question about them any of them.

So the people will now say, “They are three, their dog is the fourth”; and some will say, “They are five, their dog is the sixth” – just blind guesses; and some will say, “They are seven, and their dog is the eighth”; proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), “My Lord well knows their number – no one knows them except a few”; therefore do not debate concerning them except what has occurred, and do not ask any of the People of the Book(s) anything concerning them.

Some will say: “They were three, and their dog was the fourth;” and some will also say: “They were five and their dog was the sixth,” — guessing in the dark. And some will even say: “They were seven, and their dog the eighth.” Say: “My Lord alone knows best their number; none but only a few know of them.” So do not argue about it with them but lightly, and do not enquire about them from any one of them.
