Kingship (Al-Mulk)
30 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Mountain (Al-Toor) before Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Sovereignty, 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) 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) Look twice (and keep on looking), your eyes will only become dull and tired. (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 is the punishment of hell, and evil is the resort. (6) When they shall be cast therein, they shall hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves, (7) as though bursting with rage. Each time a group is cast into it, its keepers will ask them, "Did no warner come 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) They will also say, "Had We listened or used our minds, we would not have become the dwellers of hell". (10) They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the Companions of the Blazing Fire! (11) For those who fear their Lord in secret is forgiveness and a great reward. (12) AND [know, O men, that] whether you keep your beliefs secret or state them openly, He has full knowledge indeed of all that is in [your] hearts. (13) Shall not He who hath created know? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. (14)
