Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ Blessed is He in whose hands is the Kingdom and who has power over all things. (1) Who created death and life in order to try you to see who of you are best of deed. He is all-mighty and forgiving, (2) The One Who created the seven heavens atop each other; do you see any discrepancy in the creation of the Most Gracious? Therefore lift your gaze do you see any cracks? (3) Yea, turn thy vision [upon it] again and yet again: [and every time] thy vision will fall back upon thee, dazzled and truly defeated. (4) And indeed We have adorned the nearest heaven with lamps, and We have made such lamps (as) missiles to drive away the Shayatin (devils), and have prepared for them the torment of the blazing Fire. (5) Those who are bent on blaspheming against their Lord will have the punishment of Hell: an evil destination. (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, "Yes, someone did come to warn us, but we rejected him saying, 'God has revealed nothing. You are in great error". (9) They also say, 'If we had only heard, or had understood, we would not have been of the inhabitants of the Blaze.' (10) So it is that they confess their sins. Curse the inhabitants of the Blaze! (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 secret or aloud, He knows the innermost of the chests. (13) Shall not He who hath created know? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. (14)
