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
۞ Blessed be He in whose hand is the Kingdom -- He is powerful over everything -- (1) Who created death and life that He might try you as to which of you is better in deed. He is the Most Mighty, the Most Forgiving; (2) Who created the seven heavens one upon another. You will see no incongruity in the Merciful One's creation. Turn your vision again, can you see any flaw? (3) Then return your gaze once more and yet again, your gaze comes back to you dazzled, and tired. (4) We have adorned the lower heaven with lamps, and have made them a means to drive away the satans. We have prepared for them the chastisement of the Blazing Fire. (5) The chastisement of Hell awaits those who disbelieve in their Lord. What a wretched destination! (6) When they are cast into it, they will hear it roar and raging (7) Almost bursting with fury: Every time a Group is cast therein, its Keepers will ask, "Did no Warner 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) And they say: Had we been wont to listen or have sense, we had not been among the dwellers in the flames. (10) and thus they will confess their sin; far from God's mercy are the inmates of Hell. (11) For those who fear their Lord in secret is forgiveness and a great reward. (12) Whether you say a thing secretly or openly, He knows the innermost secrets of your hearts. (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)
