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 to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed - and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving - (2) It is He who has created seven heavens, one above the other. You can see no flaw in the creation of the Beneficent God. Look again. Can you see faults? (3) Then turn your vision again, and then again; in the end your vision will come back to you, worn out and frustrated. (4) And We have certainly beautified the nearest heaven with stars and have made [from] them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there awaits the chastisement of Gehenna -- an evil homecoming! (6) When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath even as it blazes forth, (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 say, 'Yes indeed, a warner came to us; but we cried lies, saying, "God has not sent down anything; you are only in great error. (9) They will further say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we should not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!" (10) So they shall confess their sin. Far away they be, the fellows 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 whether you speak softly or proclaim it aloud; He indeed knows what lies within the hearts! (13) Should He not know what He created? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. (14)
