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 is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things. (1) Who created death and life that He might try you as to which of you is better in deed. He is the Most Mighty, the Most 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) Then return thy gaze again, and again, and thy gaze comes back to thee dazzled, aweary. (4) And We adorned the lower heaven with lamps, and made them things to stone Satans; and We have prepared for them the chastisement of the Blaze. (5) Those who are bent on blaspheming against their Lord will have the punishment of Hell: an evil destination. (6) When they are thrown into it, they hear from it a [dreadful] inhaling while it boils up. (7) as though it will burst with rage. Every time a multitude is cast into it, its keepers will ask them: “Did no warner come to you?” (8) They say, 'Yes indeed, a warner came to us; but we cried lies, saying, "God has not sent down anything; you are only in great error. (9) They will say, "If we had only listened or understood, we should not now be among the inmates of Hell," (10) So it is that they confess their sins. Curse the inhabitants of the Blaze! (11) Verily! Those who fear their Lord unseen (i.e. they do not see Him, nor His Punishment in the Hereafter, etc.), theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise). (12) Whether you say a thing secretly or openly, He knows the innermost secrets of your hearts. (13) Does He not know, Who created? And He is the Knower of the subtleties, the Aware. (14)
