67: Al-Mulk (الملك)

Audio Surah: AL-MULK

1:  Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things,

2:  Who created death and life that He may try you-- which of you is best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving,

3:  Who created the seven heavens one above another; you see no incongruity in the creation of the Beneficent Allah; then look again, can you see any disorder?

4:  Then turn back the eye again and again; your look shall come back to you confused while it is fatigued.

5:  And certainly We have adorned this lower heaven with lamps and We have made these missiles for the Shaitans, and We have prepared for them the chastisement of burning.

6:  And for those who disbelieve in their Lord is the punishment of hell, and evil is the resort.

7:  When they shall be cast therein, they shall hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves,

8:  Almost bursting for fury. Whenever a group is cast into it, its keeper shall ask them: Did there not come to you a warner?

9:  They shall say: Yea! indeed there came to us a warner, but we rejected (him) and said: Allah has not revealed anything, you are only in a great error.

10:  And they shall say: Had we but listened or pondered, we should not have been among the inmates of the burning fire.

11:  So they shall acknowledge their sins, but far will be (forgiveness) from the inmates of the burning fire.

12:  (As for) those who fear their Lord in secret, they shall surely have forgiveness and a great reward.

13:  And conceal your word or manifest it; surely He is Cognizant of what is in the hearts.

14:  Does He not know, Who created? And He is the Knower of the subtleties, the Aware.

15:  He it is Who made the earth smooth for you, therefore go about in the spacious sides thereof, and eat of His sustenance, and to Him is the return after death.

16:  Are you secure of those in the heaven that He should not make the earth to swallow you up? Then lo! it shall be in a state of commotion.

17:  Or are you secure of those in the heaven that He should not send down upon you a punishment? Then shall you know how was My warning.

18:  And certainly those before them rejected (the truth), then how was My disapproval.

19:  Have they not seen the birds above them expanding (their wings) and contracting (them)? What is it that withholds them save the Beneficent Allah? Surely He sees everything.

20:  Or who is it that will be a host for you to assist you besides the Beneficent Allah? The unbelievers are only in deception.

21:  Or who is it that will give you sustenance if He should withhold His sustenance? Nay! they persist in disdain and aversion.

22:  What! is he who goes prone upon his face better guided or he who walks upright upon a straight path?

23:  Say: He it is Who brought you into being and made for you the ears and the eyes and the hearts: little is it that you give thanks.

24:  Say: He it is Who multiplied you in the earth and to Him you shall be gathered.

25:  And they say: When shall this threat be (executed) if you are truthful?

26:  Say: The knowledge (thereof is only with Allah and I am only a plain warner.

27:  But when they shall see it nigh, the faces of those who disbelieve shall be sorry, and it shall be said; This is that which you used to call for.

28:  Say: Have you considered if Allah should destroy me and those with me-- rather He will have mercy on us; yet who will protect the unbelievers from a painful punishment?

29:  Say: He is the Beneficent Allah, we believe in Him and on Him do we rely, so you shall come to know who it is that is in clear error.

30:  Say: Have you considered if your water should go down, who is it then that will bring you flowing water?
