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 Most Merciful
۞ Blessed be He in whose hand is the Kingdom -- He is powerful over everything -- (1) Who hath created death and life that He might prove you, as to which of you is excellent in work. And He is the Mighty, the Forgiver. (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) Then lift your gaze again, your gaze will return towards you, unsuccessful and weak. (4) We have decked the lowest heavens with torches. With these torches We have stoned the devils and We have prepared for them the torment of hell. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there awaits the chastisement of Gehenna -- an evil homecoming! (6) When they will be cast into it, they will hear it roar as it boils, (7) As it would burst with rage. Whenever a (fresh) host is flung therein the wardens thereof ask them: Came there unto you no warner? (8) They will say: yea! surely there came a warner unto us, but we belied, and said: God hath not sent down aught, we are naught but in a great error. (9) They will say, "If we had only listened or understood, we should not now be among the inmates of Hell," (10) So they shall acknowledge their sins, but far will be (forgiveness) from the inmates of the burning fire. (11) As for those who fear their Lord unseen, for them is Forgiveness and a great Reward. (12) Whether you say a thing secretly or openly, He knows the innermost secrets of your hearts. (13) Shall He who has created (all things) not know? He is the Subtle, the Aware. (14)
