Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ Blessed be He in whose hand is the Kingdom -- He is powerful over everything -- (1) who created death and life, that He might try you which of you is fairest in works; and He is the All-mighty, the All-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) Again turn thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out. (4) We have adorned the lower heaven with lamps, and have made them a means to drive away the satans. We have prepared for them the chastisement of the Blazing Fire. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there awaits the punishment of Gehenna (Hell) an evil arrival! (6) When they will be cast into it, they will hear it roar as it boils, (7) It almost bursts up with fury. Every time a group is cast therein, its keeper will ask: "Did no warner come to you?" (8) They will say," Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said, 'Allah has not sent down anything. You are not but in great error.'" (9) And they will say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we would not have been among the dwellers of the blazing Fire!" (10) Thus will they confess their sins. Damned are these inmates of the Blazing Fire. (11) As for those who fear their Lord in the unseen will have forgiveness and a rich 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) Should He not know,- He that created? and He is the One that understands the finest mysteries (and) is well-acquainted (with them). (14)
