God let him die for a hundred years m then raised him up again. He   said: “how long have you been waiting here?” he said: “I have been waiting a day or part of a day.”  He said, Rather you have stayed here a hundred years.” (2: 259)

2- The following verses refers to the companions of the cave (Kahf) who slept for thought they had been there for one day or less:

Even so we raised them up again so they might question one another.
