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 dominion of the Universe, and Who has power over everything; (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 has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?" (3) Then turn back the eye again and again; your look shall come back to you confused while it is fatigued. (4) We have decked the lowest heavens with torches. With these torches We have stoned the devils and We have prepared for them the torment of hell. (5) For those who reject their Lord (and Cherisher) is the Penalty of Hell: and evil is (such), Destination. (6) They will hear it hissing when they will be thrown into it, and it is boiling. (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, someone did come to warn us, but we rejected him saying, 'God has revealed nothing. You are 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 they shall confess their sin. Far away they be, the fellows of the Blaze! (11) [As against this,] behold, for those who stand in awe of God although He is beyond the reach of their perception, there is forgiveness in store and a great reward. (12) And conceal your speech or publicize it; indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts. (13) Shall not He who hath created know? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. (14)
