Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ Blessed is He in whose hand is the Kingdom: He has power over all things; (1) who created death and life, that He might try you which of you is fairest in works; and He is the All-mighty, the All-forgiving -- (2) [Hallowed be] He who has created seven heavens in full harmony with one another: no fault will thou see in the creation of the Most Gracious. And turn thy vision [upon it] once more: canst thou see any flaw? (3) Yea, turn thy vision [upon it] again and yet again: [and every time] thy vision will fall back upon thee, dazzled and truly defeated. (4) And assuredly We have bedecked the nearest heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for satans: and for them We have gotten ready the torment of the Blaze. (5) For those who believe not in their Lord there is the punishment of Hell; and what a wretched destination (6) When they are thrown into it, they hear from it a [dreadful] inhaling while it boils up. (7) Well-nigh it bursteth with rage. So oft as a company is cast thereinto, the keepers thereof will ask them: came there not unto you a warner? (8) They will say," Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said, 'Allah has not sent down anything. You are not but 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 they acknowledge their sins; but far removed (from mercy) are the dwellers in the flames. (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 speech or publicize it; indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts. (13) Does He who created not know, while He is the Subtle, the Acquainted? (14)
