Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
۞ Blessed be He in whose Hand is the Kingdom, He is powerful over all things, (1) The One Who created death and life to test you who among you has the better deeds; and He only is the Most Honourable, the Oft Forgiving. (2) [And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks? (3) Then turn your vision again, and then again; in the end your vision will come back to you, worn out and frustrated. (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 will be the torment of Hell; and a hapless destination! (6) When they will be cast thereinto, they will hear thereof a braying even as it boileth up, (7) as though it will burst with rage. Every time a multitude is cast into it, its keepers will ask them: “Did no warner come to you?” (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) And they will say, “Had we listened or understood, we would not have been among the people of hell.” (10) And they will admit their sin, so [it is] alienation for the companions of the Blaze. (11) Those who fear their Lord in secret will receive forgiveness and a great reward. (12) And whether ye hide your word or publish it, He certainly has (full) knowledge, of the secrets of (all) hearts. (13) Does He who created not know, while He is the Subtle, the Acquainted? (14)
