Section 1

Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Mulk 67:1] Most Auspicious is He in Whose control is the entire kingship; and He is Able to do all things.

[Mulk 67:2] The One Who created death and life to test you - who among you has the better deeds; and He only is the Most Honourable, the Oft Forgiving.

[Mulk 67:3] The One Who created the seven heavens atop each other; do you see any discrepancy in the creation of the Most Gracious? Therefore lift your gaze – do you see any cracks?

[Mulk 67:4] Then lift your gaze again, your gaze will return towards you, unsuccessful and weak.

[Mulk 67:5] And indeed We have beautified the lower heaven with lamps, and have made them weapons against the devils, and have kept prepared for them the punishment of the blazing fire.

[Mulk 67:6] And for those who disbelieved in their Lord, is the punishment of hell; and what a wretched outcome!

[Mulk 67:7] They will hear it hissing when they will be thrown into it, and it is boiling.

[Mulk 67:8] As if about to explode with rage; whenever a group is thrown into it, the guardians of hell will ask them, “Did not a Herald of Warning come to you?”

[Mulk 67:9] They will say, “Yes, why not – indeed a Herald of Warning did come to us – in response we denied and said ‘Allah has not sent down anything – you are not except in a great error’.”

[Mulk 67:10] And they will say, “Had we listened or understood, we would not have been among the people of hell.”

[Mulk 67:11] So now they admit their sins! Therefore accursed be the people of hell!

[Mulk 67:12] Indeed for those who fear their Lord without seeing is forgiveness, and a great reward.
