Arthur John Arberry rendition of Surah The Sovereignty, Control, The Kingdom(al-Mulk)
67:1 Blessed be He in whose hand is the Kingdom -- He is powerful over everything -
67:2 who created death and life, that He might try you which of you is fairest in works; and He is the All-mighty, the All-forgiving -
67:3 who created seven heavens one upon another. Thou seest not in the creation of the All-merciful any imperfection. Return thy gaze; seest thou any fissure
67:4 Then return thy gaze again, and again, and thy gaze comes back to thee dazzled, aweary
67:5 And We adorned the lower heaven with lamps, and made them things to stone Satans; and We have prepared for them the chastisement of the Blaze
67:6 And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there awaits the chastisement of Gehenna -- an evil homecoming
67:7 When they are cast into it they will hear it sighing, the while it boil
67:8 and wellnigh bursts asunder with rage. As often as a troop is cast into it, its keepers ask them, 'Came there no warner to you?'
67:9 They say, 'Yes indeed, a warner came to us; but we cried lies, saying, "God has not sent down anything; you are only in great error
67:10 They also say, 'If we had only heard, or had understood, we would not have been of the inhabitants of the Blaze.
67:11 So they confess their sins. Curse the inhabitants of the Blaze
67:12 Surely those who fear their Lord in the Unseen -- there awaits them forgiveness and a great wage
67:13 Be secret in your speech, or proclaim it, He knows the thoughts within the breasts
67:14 Shall He not know, who created? And He is the All-subtle, the All-aware
67:15 It is He who made the earth submissive to you; therefore walk in its tracts, and eat of His provision; to Him is the Uprising
67:16 Do you feel secure that He who is in heaven will not cause the earth to swallow you, the while it rocks
67:17 Do you feel secure that He who is in heaven will not loose against you a squall of pebbles, then you shall know how My warning is
67:18 Those that were before them also cried lies; then how was My horror
67:19 Have they not regarded the birds above them spreading their wings, and closing them? Naught holds them but the All-merciful. Surely He sees everything
67:20 Or who is this that shall be a host for you to help you, apart from the All-merciful? The unbelievers are only in delusion
67:21 Or who is this that shall provide for you if He withholds His provision? No, but they persist in disdain and aversion
67:22 What, is he who walks prone upon his face better guided than he who walks upright on a straight path
67:23 Say: 'It is He who produced you, and appointed for you hearing and sight and hearts; little thanks you show!
67:24 Say: 'It is He who scattered you in the earth, and unto Him you shall be mustered.
67:25 They say, 'When shall this promise come to pass, if you speak truly?
67:26 Say: 'The knowledge is with God; I am only a clear warner.
67:27 Then, when they see it nigh at hand, the faces of the unbelievers will be vexed, and it will be said, 'This is what you were promised.
67:28 Say: 'What think you? If God destroys me and those with me, or has mercy on us, then who will protect the unbelievers from a painful chastisement?
67:29 Say: 'He is the All-merciful. We believe in Him, and in Him we put all our trust. Assuredly, you will soon, know who is in manifest error
67:30 Say: 'What think you? If in the morning your water should have vanished into the earth, then who would bring you running water?
