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 be He in whose hand is the Kingdom -- He is powerful over everything -- (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) He Who created the seven heavens one above another: No want of proportion wilt thou see in the Creation of (Allah) Most Gracious. So turn thy vision again: seest thou any flaw? (3) Then lift your gaze again, your gaze will return towards you, unsuccessful and weak. (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) For those who have disbelieved in their Lord, We have prepared the torment of hell, the most terrible place to return. (6) When they are cast into it, they will hear its roaring as it boils up, (7) nearly bursting apart out of rage. Every time a host is cast therein, its keepers will ask them: 'Did no one come to warn you' (8) And they will answer: "Surely; a warner came to us, but we denied him, and said: 'God did not send down any thing; you are greatly deluded, in fact.'" (9) And they will say, “Had we listened or understood, we would not have been among the people of hell.” (10) So now they admit their sins! Therefore accursed be the people of hell! (11) Indeed for those who fear their Lord without seeing is forgiveness, and a great 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) Shall not He who hath created know? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. (14)
