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 Dispenser of Grace
۞ HALLOWED be He in whose hand all dominion rests, since He has the power to will anything: (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) 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) Then return your gaze once more and yet again, your gaze comes back to you dazzled, 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) And for those who disbelieved in their Lord is the punishment of Hell, and wretched is the destination. (6) When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath even as it blazes forth, (7) as though bursting with rage. Each time a group is cast into it, its keepers will ask them, "Did no warner come to you?" (8) They will say," Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said, 'Allah has not sent down anything. You are not but 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 they shall acknowledge their sins, but far will be (forgiveness) from the inmates of the burning fire. (11) Surely those who fear their Lord in the Unseen -- there awaits them forgiveness and a great wage. (12) And whather ye keep your discourse secret or publish it, verily He is the Knower of that which is in the breasts. (13) How could it be that He who has created [all] should not know [all]? Yea, He alone is unfathomable [in His wisdom,] aware! (14)
