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 is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things. (1) He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-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) Yea, turn thy vision [upon it] again and yet again: [and every time] thy vision will fall back upon thee, dazzled and truly defeated. (4) We have adorned the lowest heaven with lamps, and We have made them for driving away devils. For them We have prepared the punishment of the blazing Fire. (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) As though it would burst with fury. Every time a crowd is thrown into it, its wardens will ask: "Did no warner come to you?" (8) And they will answer: "Surely; a warner came to us, but we denied him, and said: 'God did not send down any thing; you are greatly deluded, in fact.'" (9) And they will say: had we been wont to hearken or to reflect, we had not been among the fellows of the Blaze. (10) And they will admit their sin, so [it is] alienation for the companions 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) And whether you speak softly or proclaim it aloud; He indeed knows what lies within the hearts! (13) Can He who has created not know (His creation)? He is all-penetrating, all-aware. (14)
