Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
۞ Blest be He in whose hand is the dominion, and He is over everything Potent. (1) He created death and life so that He might test you, and find out which of you is best in conduct. He is the Mighty, the Most Forgiving One. (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) Then return [your] vision twice again. [Your] vision will return to you humbled while it is fatigued. (4) And indeed We have beautified the lower heaven with lamps, and have made them weapons against the devils, and have kept prepared for them the punishment of the blazing fire. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the doom of hell, a hapless journey's end! (6) When they are cast into that [hell,] they will hear its breath indrawing as it boils up, (7) It almost bursts with rage. Every time a company is thrown into it, its keepers ask them, "Did there not come to you a warner?" (8) They will reply: "Yea, a warner did indeed come unto us, but we gave him the lie and said, 'Never has God sent down anything [by way of revelation]! You [self-styled warners] are but lost in a great delusion!"' (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 they acknowledge their sins; but far removed (from mercy) are the dwellers in the flames. (11) Surely forgiveness and a mighty reward await those who fear Allah without seeing Him. (12) Be secret in your speech, or proclaim it, He knows the thoughts within the breasts. (13) Should not He Who has created know? And He is the Most Kind and Courteous (to His slaves) All-Aware (of everything). (14)
