The Seven Sleepers
The imagery and text featured here derive from the story of the Seven Sleepers — a legend dating back to pre-Islamic times that became a metaphor for divine protection. The story, included in passage 18:9-15 of the Qur'an, took place in Ephesus (a town in present-day Turkey). Three Christian youths fled a pagan town and were later joined by four others and a dog. Determined to punish the fugitives for not respecting the pagan gods, the ruler set after the youths. The seven men and their dog found refuge in a cave, where they fell asleep. God ordered the angels of death to take their souls until the danger had passed. Three hundred and nine years later, God breathed life into them again.
