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
۞ Blessed is He in whose hand is the Kingdom: He has power over all things; (1) It is He who has created death and life to put you to the test and see which of you is most virtuous in your deeds. He is Majestic and All-forgiving. (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 turn back the eye again and again; your look shall come back to you confused while it is fatigued. (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) For those who have disbelieved in their Lord, We have prepared the torment of hell, the most terrible place to return. (6) When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath as it blazes forth. (7) nearly bursting apart out of rage. Every time a host is cast therein, its keepers will ask them: 'Did no one come to warn you' (8) They will say: “Yes, a warner came to us, but we gave the lie to him and said: 'Allah has revealed nothing. You are surely in huge 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) 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) Whether you speak in secrecy or aloud, (it is all the same to Allah). He even knows the secrets that lie hidden in the breasts of people. (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)
