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 hands is the Kingdom and who has power over all things. (1) He created death and life so that He might test you, and find out which of you is best in conduct. He is the Mighty, the Most Forgiving One. (2) Who hath created seven heavens in harmony. Thou (Muhammad) canst see no fault in the Beneficent One's creation; then look again: Canst thou see any rifts? (3) Then return [your] vision twice again. [Your] vision will return to you humbled while it is fatigued. (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 punishment of Gehenna (Hell) an evil arrival! (6) When they are thrown into it, they hear from it a [dreadful] inhaling while it boils up. (7) As if about to explode with rage; whenever a group is thrown into it, the guardians of hell will ask them, “Did not a Herald of Warning come to you?” (8) And they will answer: "Surely; a warner came to us, but we denied him, and said: 'God did not send down any thing; you are greatly deluded, in fact.'" (9) And they will then say: 'If only we had listened and understood we should not now be among the inhabitants of the Blaze' (10) They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the Companions 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) speak in secret or aloud, He knows the innermost of the chests. (13) What! Will He Who has created not know? Whereas He knows every detail, the All Aware! (14)
