Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things, (1) He who has created death as well as life, so that He might put you to a test [and thus show] which of you is best in conduct, and [make you realize that] He alone is almighty, truly forgiving. (2) Who hath created seven heavens in harmony. Thou (Muhammad) canst see no fault in the Beneficent One's creation; then look again: Canst thou see any rifts? (3) Again turn thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out. (4) And we have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones, and have prepared for them the Penalty of the Blazing Fire. (5) And for those who disbelieved in their Lord, is the punishment of hell; and what a wretched outcome! (6) When they are cast into it they shall hear it sighing, while it boils (7) As though it would burst with fury. Every time a crowd is thrown into it, its wardens will ask: "Did no warner come to 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) And they will say: had we been wont to hearken or to reflect, we had not been among the fellows of the Blaze. (10) Thus will they confess their sins. Damned are these inmates of the Blazing Fire. (11) Lo! those who fear their Lord in secret, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward. (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) Can He who has created not know (His creation)? He is all-penetrating, all-aware. (14)
