Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and 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) Who created the seven skies one above the other. Do you see any disproportion in the creations of Ar-Rahman? Turn your eyes again. Do you see any fissures? (3) Look twice (and keep on looking), your eyes will only become dull and tired. (4) We have adorned the lowest sky with lamps, and made them missiles against the devils, for whom We have prepared a torment of most intense fire. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there awaits the chastisement of Gehenna -- an evil homecoming! (6) When they are cast into it they shall hear it sighing, while it boils (7) as though it will burst with rage. Every time a multitude is cast into it, its keepers will ask them: “Did no warner 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) 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) Then they will confess their sin. So, away with the dwellers of the blazing Fire. (11) Verily! Those who fear their Lord unseen (i.e. they do not see Him, nor His Punishment in the Hereafter, etc.), theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise). (12) Whether you say a thing secretly or openly, He knows the innermost secrets of your hearts. (13) What! Will He Who has created not know? Whereas He knows every detail, the All Aware! (14)
