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
۞ Blest be He in whose hand is the dominion, and He is over everything Potent. (1) Who hath created death and life that He might prove you, as to which of you is excellent in work. And He is the Mighty, the Forgiver. (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 lift your gaze again, your gaze will return towards you, unsuccessful and weak. (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 are thrown into hell, they will hear its roaring while it boils. (7) Almost bursting with fury: Every time a Group is cast therein, its Keepers will ask, "Did no Warner come 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) And they will then say: 'If only we had listened and understood we should not now be among the inhabitants of the Blaze' (10) They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the Companions of the Blazing Fire! (11) Verily those who dread their Lord unseen, theirs shall be forgiveness and a great hire. (12) Be secret in your speech, or proclaim it, He knows the thoughts within the breasts. (13) Can He who has created not know (His creation)? He is all-penetrating, all-aware. (14)
