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 Most Merciful
۞ Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things, (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) The One Who created the seven heavens atop each other; do you see any discrepancy in the creation of the Most Gracious? Therefore lift your gaze do you see any cracks? (3) Turn your eyes again and again. Your gaze turns back dazed and tired. (4) And indeed We have adorned the nearest heaven with lamps, and We have made such lamps (as) missiles to drive away the Shayatin (devils), and have prepared for them the torment of the blazing Fire. (5) For those who believe not in their Lord there is the punishment of Hell; and what a wretched destination (6) When they shall be cast therein, they shall hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves, (7) Almost bursting for fury. Whenever a group is cast into it, its keeper shall ask them: Did there not come to you a warner? (8) 'Yes, indeed' they will reply, 'but we belied the Warner (Messenger) saying: 'Allah has not sent down anything, you are but in great error' (9) And they will add: "Had we but listened [to those warnings,] or [at least] used our own reason, we would not [now] be among those who are destined for the blazing flame!" (10) Thus will they come to realize their sins: but [by that time,] remote will have become all good from those who are destined for the blazing flame. (11) Surely forgiveness and a mighty reward await those who fear Allah without seeing Him. (12) AND [know, O men, that] whether you keep your beliefs secret or state them openly, He has full knowledge indeed of all that is in [your] hearts. (13) How could He who created not know His own creation, when He alone is the Most Subtle in His wisdom and the All Aware? (14)
