67: Al-Mulk (الملك)
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?
