Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ Blessed be He in whose hand is the Kingdom -- He is powerful over everything -- (1) Who created death and life that He may try you-- which of you is best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving, (2) [Hallowed be] He who has created seven heavens in full harmony with one another: no fault will thou see in the creation of the Most Gracious. And turn thy vision [upon it] once more: canst thou see any flaw? (3) Turn your eyes again and again. Your gaze turns back dazed and tired. (4) And We have certainly beautified the nearest heaven with stars and have made [from] them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the doom of hell, a hapless journey's end! (6) When they are thrown into it, they hear from it a [dreadful] inhaling while it boils up. (7) nearly bursting apart out of rage. Every time a host is cast therein, its keepers will ask them: 'Did no one come to warn you' (8) They say: Yea, verily, a warner came unto us; but we denied and said: Allah hath naught revealed; ye are in naught but a great error. (9) And they will add: "Had we but listened [to those warnings,] or [at least] used our own reason, we would not [now] be among those who are destined for the blazing flame!" (10) and thus they will confess their sin; far from God's mercy are the inmates of Hell. (11) Surely forgiveness and a mighty reward await those who fear Allah without seeing Him. (12) Whether you say a thing secretly or openly, He knows the innermost secrets of your hearts. (13) How could it be that He who has created [all] should not know [all]? Yea, He alone is unfathomable [in His wisdom,] aware! (14)
