This study aims to analyze the metaphors and metaphor translation strategies used in the English translation of Surah Al-Kahf. In this study, the researcher focused on discovering the types of metaphors in Surah Al-Kahf. After that, find out the metaphor translation strategy used by the translator in translating the metaphorical sentences in Surah Al-Kahf. The researcher used Marmaduke Pitckhall's English translation of the Qur'an as a data source. The data uses the theory of metaphor by Kovecses to analyze it and the theory of metaphor translation strategy by Newmark. In conducting this research, the researcher used a qualitative descriptive method to analyze. This research reveals three metaphors; structural, ontological, and orientational. While there are seven strategies such as metaphors being reproduced equally in the target language, metaphors being replaced with standard target languages, metaphors translated into similes, metaphors translated into similes plus meaning, and metaphors converted into meanings, metaphors being removed along with their meaning components, metaphors are translated into meaningful metaphors that combine meaning. There are fifteen verses in Surah Al-Kahf containing metaphors. The most dominant metaphor in this research is the ontological metaphor because this surah contains many meanings or messages. Comparatively, the structural and orientational are found at the least. At the same time, in Surah Al-Kahf, the metaphor translation strategies found only three types of strategies out of seven strategies.
