Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ Blessed be He in whose hand is the Kingdom -- He is powerful over everything -- (1) The One Who created death and life to test you who among you has the better deeds; and He only is the Most Honourable, the Oft Forgiving. (2) He Who created the seven heavens one above another: No want of proportion wilt thou see in the Creation of (Allah) Most Gracious. So turn thy vision again: seest thou any flaw? (3) Then look again and again. Your gaze will come back to you confused and exhausted. (4) We have decked the lowest heavens with torches. With these torches We have stoned the devils and We have prepared for them the torment of hell. (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 roar and raging (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 will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we belied him and said: 'Allah never sent down anything (of revelation), you are only in great error.'" (9) They will also say, "Had We listened or used our minds, we would not have become the dwellers of hell". (10) So now they admit their sins! Therefore accursed be the people of hell! (11) Surely those who fear their Lord in the Unseen -- there awaits them forgiveness and a great wage. (12) (Whether you) speak in secret or aloud, He knows the innermost of the chests. (13) Should not He Who has created know? And He is the Most Kind and Courteous (to His slaves) All-Aware (of everything). (14)
