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 is He in whose hand is the Kingdom: He has power over all things; (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) Who created the seven heavens one upon another. You will see no incongruity in the Merciful One's creation. Turn your vision again, can you see any flaw? (3) Then turn your vision again, and then again; in the end your vision will come back to you, worn out and frustrated. (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) For those who have disbelieved in their Lord, We have prepared the torment of hell, the most terrible place to return. (6) When they shall be cast therein, they shall hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves, (7) Almost bursting with fury: Every time a Group is cast therein, its Keepers will ask, "Did no Warner come to you?" (8) They will say, “Yes, why not indeed a Herald of Warning did come to us in response we denied and said ‘Allah has not sent down anything you are not except in a great error’.” (9) And they shall say: Had we but listened or pondered, we should not have been among the inmates of the burning fire. (10) and thus they will confess their sin; far from God's mercy are the inmates of Hell. (11) [As against this,] behold, for those who stand in awe of God although He is beyond the reach of their perception, there is forgiveness in store and a great reward. (12) Be secret in your speech, or proclaim it, He knows the thoughts within the breasts. (13) Shall not He who hath created know? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. (14)
