Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Sovereignty, and, He is Able to do all things. (1) He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving;- (2) Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?" (3) Then return [your] vision twice again. [Your] vision will return to you humbled while it is fatigued. (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) The chastisement of Hell awaits those who disbelieve in their Lord. What a wretched destination! (6) When they are thrown into hell, they will hear its roaring while it boils. (7) and wellnigh bursts asunder with rage. As often as a troop is cast into it, its keepers ask them, 'Came there no warner to you?'; (8) They will reply: "Yea, a warner did indeed come unto us, but we gave him the lie and said, 'Never has God sent down anything [by way of revelation]! You [self-styled warners] are but lost in a great delusion!"' (9) They will say, "If we had only listened or understood, we should not now be among the inmates of Hell," (10) So they confess their sins. Curse the inhabitants of the Blaze! (11) Lo! those who fear their Lord in secret, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward. (12) (Whether you) speak in secret or aloud, He knows the innermost of the chests. (13) Does He not know, Who created? And He is the Knower of the subtleties, the Aware. (14)
