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 Most Merciful
۞ Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Sovereignty, and, He is Able to do all things. (1) The One Who created death and life to test you who among you has the better deeds; and He only is the Most Honourable, the Oft Forgiving. (2) [And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks? (3) Then return your gaze once more and yet again, your gaze comes back to you dazzled, and tired. (4) And We adorned the lower heaven with lamps, and made them things to stone Satans; and We have prepared for them the chastisement of the Blaze. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord is the punishment of hell, and evil is the resort. (6) When they are cast into it, they will hear it roar and raging (7) It almost bursts up with fury. Every time a group is cast therein, its keeper will ask: "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) And they will add: "Had we but listened [to those warnings,] or [at least] used our own reason, we would not [now] be among those who are destined for the blazing flame!" (10) So they acknowledge their sins; but far removed (from mercy) are the dwellers in the flames. (11) Surely those who fear their Lord in the Unseen -- there awaits them forgiveness and a great wage. (12) Be secret in your speech, or proclaim it, He knows the thoughts within the breasts. (13) How could He who created not know His own creation, when He alone is the Most Subtle in His wisdom and the All Aware? (14)
