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
۞ Blessed be He in whose hand is the Kingdom -- He is powerful over everything -- (1) He created death and life so that He might test you, and find out which of you is best in conduct. He is the Mighty, the Most Forgiving One. (2) He Who created the seven heavens one above another: No want of proportion wilt thou see in the Creation of (Allah) Most Gracious. So turn thy vision again: seest thou any flaw? (3) Then lift your gaze again, your gaze will return towards you, unsuccessful and weak. (4) And verily We have beautified the world's heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for the devils, and for them We have prepared the doom of flame. (5) For those who have disbelieved in their Lord, We have prepared the torment of hell, the most terrible place to return. (6) When they are cast into it they shall hear it sighing, while it boils (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 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) And they say: Had we been wont to listen or have sense, we had not been among the dwellers in the flames. (10) They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the Companions of the Blazing Fire! (11) Those who fear their Lord in secret will receive forgiveness and a great reward. (12) And whather ye keep your discourse secret or publish it, verily He is the Knower of that which is in the breasts. (13) Can He who has created not know (His creation)? He is all-penetrating, all-aware. (14)
