Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ BLESSED BE HE who holds the (reins of) Kingship in His hand, who has power over everything, (1) He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving;- (2) Who created the seven heavens one above another; you see no incongruity in the creation of the Beneficent Allah; then look again, can you see any disorder? (3) Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return unto thee weakened and made dim. (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) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there awaits the punishment of Gehenna (Hell) an evil arrival! (6) When they are cast into that [hell,] they will hear its breath indrawing as it boils up, (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) They will say," Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said, 'Allah has not sent down anything. You are not but 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) So it is that they confess their sins. Curse the inhabitants of the Blaze! (11) For those who fear their Lord in secret is forgiveness and a great reward. (12) And conceal your word or manifest it; surely He is Cognizant of what is in the hearts. (13) Does He not know, Who created? And He is the Knower of the subtleties, the Aware. (14)
