Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ BLESSED BE HE who holds the (reins of) Kingship in His hand, who has power over everything, (1) Who hath created life and death that He may try you which of you is best in conduct; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving, (2) The One Who created the seven heavens atop each other; do you see any discrepancy in the creation of the Most Gracious? Therefore lift your gaze do you see any cracks? (3) Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return unto thee weakened and made dim. (4) And We have certainly beautified the nearest heaven with stars and have made [from] them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the doom of hell, a hapless journey's end! (6) When they shall be cast therein, they shall hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves, (7) It almost bursts with rage. Every time a company is thrown into it, its keepers ask them, "Did there not come to you a warner?" (8) They say, 'Yes indeed, a warner came to us; but we cried lies, saying, "God has not sent down anything; you are only in great error. (9) And they will say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we would not have been among the dwellers of the blazing Fire!" (10) So will they confess their guilt. Deprived (of all joys) will be the inmates of Hell. (11) For those who fear their Lord in secret is forgiveness and a great reward. (12) And conceal your word or manifest it; surely He is Cognizant of what is in the hearts. (13) Can He who has created not know (His creation)? He is all-penetrating, all-aware. (14)
