Sura Al-Mulk (The Dominion)
Sheikh / Mahmoud AlHosary

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    67:1 Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the supreme power, and He is Able to do all things.

    67:2 Who has created life and death that He may try you, which of you is best in conduct; and He is the Mighty, Forgiving,

    67:3-6 Who has created seven heavens in harmony. You (O Muhammad) can see no fault in the Beneficent One's creation; then look again: Can you see any rifts? Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you weakened and made dim. And verily We have beautified the world's heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for the satans, and for them We have prepared the punishment of flame. And for those who disbelieve in their Lord theirs is the punishment of Hell, an evil journey's end!

    67:7-11 When they are flung therein they hear its roaring as it boils up, as if it would burst with rage. Whenever a (fresh) host is flung therein the wardens thereof ask them: Came there to you no warner? They say: Yes, verily, a warner came to us; but we denied and said: God has revealed nothing; you are in nothing but a great error. And they say: Had we been wont to listen or have sense, we had not been among the dwellers in the flames. So they acknowledge their sins; but far removed (from mercy) are the dwellers in the flames.

    67:12 Lo! Those who fear their Lord in secret, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward.

    67:13-14 And keep your opinion secret or proclaim it, lo! He is Knower of all that is in the breasts (of men). Should He not know what He created? And He is the Subtle, the Aware.

    67:15-18 He it is Who has made the earth subservient to you, so walk in the paths thereof and eat of His providence. And to Him will be the resurrection (of the dead). Have you taken security from Him Who is in the heaven that He will not cause the earth to swallow you when lo! It is convulsed? Or have you taken security from Him Who is in the heaven that He will not let loose on you a hurricane? But you shall know the manner of My warning. And verily those before them denied, then (see) the manner of My wrath (with them)!

    67:19 Have they not seen the birds above them spreading out their wings and closing them? Nothing upholds them except the Beneficent. Lo! He is Seer of all things.

    67:20-22 Or who is he that will be an army to you to help you instead of the Beneficent? The disbelievers are in nothing but illusion. Or who is he that will provide for you if He should with hold His providence? Nay, but they are set in pride and frowardness. Is he who goes groping on his face more rightly guided, or he who walks upright on a straight road?

    67:23-25 Say (to them, O Muhammad): It is He Who gave you being, and has assigned to you ears and eyes and hearts. Small thanks give you! Say, it is He Who multiplies you in the earth, and to Whom you will be gathered. And they say: When (will) this promise (be fulfilled), if you are truthful?

    67:26-27 Say: The knowledge is with God only, and I am but a plain warner; but when they see it near, the faces of those who disbelieve will be awry, and it will be said (to them): This is that for which you used to call.

    67:28 Say (O Muhammad): Have you thought: Whether God causes me (Muhammad) and those with me to perish or has mercy on us, still, who will protect the disbelievers from a painful punishment?

    67:29 Say: He is the Beneficent. In Him we believe and in Him we put our trust. And you will soon know who it is that is in error manifest.

    67:30 Say: Have you thought: If (all) your water were to disappear into the earth, who then could bring you gushing water?
