67:1  Blessed is He in whose hand is the dominion, and He is over all things competent.
67:2  He who created life and death to test which of you is best in conduct. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving.
67:3  He who created seven heavens in layers. You will see no discrepancy in the creation of the Merciful. Look again: do you see any flaws?
67:4  Look again, and yet again, and your sight will return to you dazzled and fatigued.
67:5  We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps, and We made them projectiles to drive away the devils. We prepared for them the torment of the Blaze.
67:6  For those who deny their Lord, the punishment of Hell awaits—a terrible destination.
67:7  When they are thrown into it, they will hear it gasping as it boils over.
67:8  It almost bursts with rage. Every time a batch is hurled into it, its keepers will ask them, “Did no Warner come to you?”
67:9  They will answer, “Yes, a warner did come to us, but we denied and said, ‘God didn’t reveal anything; you are greatly mistaken.’”
67:10  And they will say, “If only we had listened or used reason, we wouldn’t be among the inhabitants of the Fiery Blaze.”
67:11  They confessed their sin. So, away with the dwellers of the Blaze.
67:12  For those who fear their Lord unseen, for them is forgiveness and a grand reward.
67:13  Whether you conceal your words or declare them, He knows the secrets of the hearts.
67:14  Wouldn’t He know, He who created? He is the Kind, the Expert.
67:15  It is He who made the earth manageable for you. So traverse its tracks and eat from His provision. To Him is the resurgence.
67:16  Are you certain that the One in the heavens won’t cause the earth to swallow you as it shakes?
67:17  Are you sure that the One in the heavens won’t send upon you a violent wind? Then you will know how My warning was.
67:18  Those before them also denied. So, how was My denial?
67:19  Don’t they see the birds above them, spreading and folding their wings? None holds them up except the Merciful. He is watchful over all things.
67:20  Who could be an army to aid you, other than the Most Merciful? The unbelievers are in nothing but delusion.
67:21  Who will sustain you if He withholds His provision? Yet, they persist in defiance and aversion.
67:22  Who is better guided: the one who walks face down, or the one who walks upright on a straight path?
67:23  Say, “It is He who created you and endowed you with hearing, sight, and hearts. Yet, little do you give thanks.”
67:24  Say, “It is He who caused you to multiply throughout the earth, and to Him, you will be gathered.”
67:25  They ask, “When will this promise be fulfilled, if you are truthful?”
67:26  Respond, “Its knowledge lies only with God, and I am but a clear warner.”
67:27  When they see it approaching, the faces of those who disbelieved will be distressed, and it will be said, “This is what you were calling for.”
67:28  Say, “Consider this: whether God destroys me and whoever is with me, or He showers us with His mercy, who can protect the unbelievers from a severe punishment?”
67:29  Say, “He is the Most Merciful. We have believed in Him, and upon Him, we rely. Soon, you will realize who is in glaring error.”
67:30  Say, “Consider this: if your water were to become sunken, who could supply you with fresh, flowing water?”
