Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion of the Universe, and Who has power over everything; (1) Who hath created life and death that He may try you which of you is best in conduct; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving, (2) Who created the seven skies one above the other. Do you see any disproportion in the creations of Ar-Rahman? Turn your eyes again. Do you see any fissures? (3) Again turn thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out. (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) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there awaits the punishment of Gehenna (Hell) an evil arrival! (6) When they are cast into it, they will hear it roar and raging (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, a warner came to us, but we gave the lie to him and said: 'Allah has revealed nothing. You are surely in huge 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) (As for) those who fear their Lord in secret, they shall surely have forgiveness and a great reward. (12) And conceal your speech or publicize it; indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts. (13) Shall He not know, who created? And He is the All-subtle, the All-aware. (14)
