Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ Most Auspicious is He in Whose control is the entire kingship; and He is Able to do all things. (1) He who has created death as well as life, so that He might put you to a test [and thus show] which of you is best in conduct, and [make you realize that] He alone is almighty, truly 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 turn your vision again, and then again; in the end your vision will come back to you, worn out and frustrated. (4) We have adorned the lowest sky with lamps, and made them missiles against the devils, for whom We have prepared a torment of most intense fire. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord (Allah) is the torment of Hell, and worst indeed is that destination. (6) When they shall be cast therein, they shall hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves, (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 reply: "Yea, a warner did indeed come unto us, but we gave him the lie and said, 'Never has God sent down anything [by way of revelation]! You [self-styled warners] are but lost in a great delusion!"' (9) They will say, "If we had only listened or understood, we should not now be among the inmates of Hell," (10) And they will admit their sin, so [it is] alienation for the companions of the Blaze. (11) Surely those who fear their Lord in the Unseen -- there awaits them forgiveness and a great wage. (12) Whether you say a thing secretly or openly, He knows the innermost secrets of your hearts. (13) Can He who has created not know (His creation)? He is all-penetrating, all-aware. (14)
