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 hands is the Kingdom and who has power over all things. (1) Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving; (2) Who hath created seven heavens in storeys. Thou shalt not behold in the Compassionate's creation any over-sight; then repeat thy look, beholdest thou any crack? (3) Look twice (and keep on looking), your eyes will only become dull and tired. (4) And assuredly We have bedecked the nearest heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for satans: and for them We have gotten ready the torment of the Blaze. (5) And for those who disbelieved in their Lord, is the punishment of hell; and what a wretched outcome! (6) When they are cast into that [hell,] they will hear its breath indrawing as 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) 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) [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) And whather ye keep your discourse secret or publish it, verily He is the Knower of that which is in the breasts. (13) Should He not know what He created? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. (14)
