Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things. (1) Who created death and life that He may try you-- which of you is best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving, (2) Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?" (3) Then return thy gaze again, and again, and thy gaze comes back to thee dazzled, aweary. (4) And certainly We have adorned this lower heaven with lamps and We have made these missiles for the Shaitans, and We have prepared for them the chastisement of burning. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the doom of hell, a hapless journey's end! (6) When they will be cast thereinto, they will hear thereof a braying even as it boileth up, (7) As if about to explode with rage; whenever a group is thrown into it, the guardians of hell will ask them, “Did not a Herald of Warning come to you?” (8) They will say: yea! surely there came a warner unto us, but we belied, and said: God hath not sent down aught, we are naught but in a great error. (9) They will further say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we should not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!" (10) Thus will they confess their sins. Damned are these inmates of the Blazing Fire. (11) [As against this,] behold, for those who stand in awe of God although He is beyond the reach of their perception, there is forgiveness in store and a great reward. (12) And conceal your word or manifest it; surely He is Cognizant of what is in the hearts. (13) Does He not know, Who created? And He is the Knower of the subtleties, the Aware. (14)
