Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ HALLOWED be He in whose hand all dominion rests, since He has the power to will anything: (1) Who hath created death and life that He might prove you, as to which of you is excellent in work. And He is the Mighty, the Forgiver. (2) who created seven heavens one upon another. Thou seest not in the creation of the All-merciful any imperfection. Return thy gaze; seest thou any fissure? (3) Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out. (4) We have adorned the lower heaven with lamps, and have made them a means to drive away the satans. We have prepared for them the chastisement of the Blazing Fire. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord (Allah) is the torment of Hell, and worst indeed is that destination. (6) When they are cast into it they will hear it sighing, the while it boils (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 say: Yea, verily, a warner came unto us; but we denied and said: Allah hath naught revealed; ye are in naught but a great error. (9) And they will say: had we been wont to hearken or to reflect, we had not been among the fellows of the Blaze. (10) And they will admit their sin, so [it is] alienation for the companions of the Blaze. (11) Lo! those who fear their Lord in secret, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward. (12) And whether ye hide your word or publish it, He certainly has (full) knowledge, of the secrets of (all) hearts. (13) How could it be that He who has created [all] should not know [all]? Yea, He alone is unfathomable [in His wisdom,] aware! (14)
