Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things. (1) It is He who has created death and life to put you to the test and see which of you is most virtuous in your deeds. He is Majestic and All-forgiving. (2) Who created the seven heavens one above another; you see no incongruity in the creation of the Beneficent Allah; then look again, can you see any disorder? (3) Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out. (4) And indeed, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with lights, and have made them the object of futile guesses for the evil ones [from among men]: and for them have We readied suffering through a blazing flame (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord (Allah) is the torment of Hell, and worst indeed is that destination. (6) When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath even as it blazes forth, (7) It almost explodes in rage. Whenever a group is thrown into it, its keepers will ask them, "Did no one come to warn you?" (8) They will say, "Of course, a warner did come to us, but we belied him and we said, 'God has revealed nothing; you are in gross error.'" (9) They will say, "If we had only listened or understood, we should not now be among the inmates of Hell," (10) So will they confess their guilt. Deprived (of all joys) will be the inmates of Hell. (11) Verily! Those who fear their Lord unseen (i.e. they do not see Him, nor His Punishment in the Hereafter, etc.), theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise). (12) Whether you speak in secrecy or aloud, (it is all the same to Allah). He even knows the secrets that lie hidden in the breasts of people. (13) Would He not know, He Who has created, when He is All-Subtle, All-Aware? (14)
