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 hands is Dominion; and He over all things hath Power;- (1) He who has created death as well as life, so that He might put you to a test [and thus show] which of you is best in conduct, and [make you realize that] He alone is almighty, truly 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) Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return unto thee weakened and made dim. (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) For those who reject their Lord (and Cherisher) is the Penalty of Hell: and evil is (such), Destination. (6) When they are cast into it they will hear it sighing, the while it boils (7) Almost bursting for fury. Whenever a group is cast into it, its keeper shall ask them: Did there not come to you a warner? (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 been wont to hearken or to reflect, we had not been among the fellows of the Blaze. (10) So they acknowledge their sins; but far removed (from mercy) are the dwellers in the flames. (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 secrecy or aloud, (it is all the same to Allah). He even knows the secrets that lie hidden in the breasts of people. (13) Does He who created not know, while He is the Subtle, the Acquainted? (14)
