Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
۞ BLESSED BE HE who holds the (reins of) Kingship in His hand, who has power over everything, (1) It is He who has created death and life to put you to the test and see which of you is most virtuous in your deeds. He is Majestic and All-forgiving. (2) He created seven heavens one above the other in layers. You will not find any flaw in the creation of the Gracious One. Then look once again: can you see any flaw? (3) Then look again and again. Your gaze will come back to you confused and exhausted. (4) We have adorned the lowest heaven with lamps, and We have made them for driving away devils. For them We have prepared 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 will be cast into it, they will hear it roar as it boils, (7) and wellnigh bursts asunder with rage. As often as a troop is cast into it, its keepers ask them, 'Came there no warner to you?'; (8) They will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we belied him and said: 'Allah never sent down anything (of revelation), you are only in great error.'" (9) And they will then say: 'If only we had listened and understood we should not now be among the inhabitants of the Blaze' (10) And they will admit their sin, so [it is] alienation for the companions of the Blaze. (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) Whether you speak in secret or aloud, He knows what is in every heart. (13) Shall He who has created (all things) not know? He is the Subtle, the Aware. (14)
