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 Sovereignty, and, He is Able to do all things. (1) Who created death and life that He may try you-- which of you is best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the 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) Then turn back the eye again and again; your look shall come back to you confused while it is fatigued. (4) We have adorned the lower heaven with lamps, and We made them a stoning for the satans, We have prepared the punishment of the Blaze for them. (5) And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there awaits the chastisement of Gehenna -- an evil homecoming! (6) When they are thrown into it, they hear from it a [dreadful] inhaling while it boils up. (7) It almost bursts with rage. Every time a company is thrown into it, its keepers ask them, "Did there not come to you a warner?" (8) They will say: "Yes indeed; a Warner did come to us, but we rejected him and said, 'Allah never sent down any (Message): ye are nothing but an egregious delusion!'" (9) They will say: "If we had listened and been wise, we would not have been among the inmates of Hell." (10) So will they confess their guilt. Deprived (of all joys) will be the inmates of Hell. (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) Can He who has created not know (His creation)? He is all-penetrating, all-aware. (14)
