N J Dawood (2014) rendition of Surah The Sovereignty, Control, The Kingdom(al-Mulk)
67:1 BLESSED BE He who in His hand holds sovereignty: He has power over all things;
67:2 who created death and life that He might put you to the proof as to which of you acquitted themselves best. He is the Almighty, the Forgiving One;
67:3 who created seven heavens, one above the other. You will not see a flaw in the Merciful‘s creation; turn up your eyes: can you detect a single crack?
67:4 Then look once more and yet again: your eyes will in the end grow dim and weary.
67:5 We have adorned the lowest heaven with lamps, missiles to pelt the demons with. For these We have prepared the torment of the Conflagration,
67:6 and for those who deny their Lord the scourge of Hell: a wretched fate!
67:7 When they are flung therein, they shall hear it roaring and seething, as though bursting with rage.
67:8 Every time a multitude is thrown in, its keepers will ask them: ‘Did no one come to warn you?‘
67:9 Yes,‘ they will say, ‘he did come, but we disbelieved and said: "God has revealed nothing: you are but in grievous error."‘
67:10 And they will say: ‘If only we listened and understood, we should not now be among the inmates of the Conflagration.‘
67:11 Thus shall they confess their sin. Cursed be the inmates of the Conflagration.
67:12 But those that fear their Lord although unseen shall be forgiven and richly recompensed.
67:13 Whether you speak in private or aloud, He surely knows your innermost thoughts.
67:14 Shall He who has created all, not know them all? Gracious is He and all-knowing.
67:15 He it is who has made the earth subservient to you. Walk about its regions and eat of His provisions. To Him shall all return at the Resurrection.
67:16 Are you confident that He who is in heaven will not cause the earth to cave in beneath you, so that it will shake to pieces?
67:17 Are you confident that He who is in heaven will not let loose on you a sandy whirlwind? You will surely learn then what My warning was like.
67:18 Those who have gone before them likewise disbelieved: but how grievous was the way I rejected them!
67:19 Do they not see the birds above their heads, spreading their wings and folding them? None save the Merciful sustains them. He surely observes all things.
67:20 Who is it that will defend you like an army, if not the Merciful? Truly, the unbelievers are in error.
67:21 Who will provide for you if He withholds His sustenance? Yet they persist in arrogance and in rebellion.
67:22 Is he that goes grovelling on his face more rightly guided than he that walks upright upon a straight path?
67:23 Say: ‘He it was who brought you into being, and gave you ears and eyes and hearts. Yet you are seldom thankful.‘
67:24 Say: ‘He it was who placed you on the earth, and to Him shall you be herded.‘
67:25 And they say: ‘When will this promise be fulfilled, if what you say be true?‘
67:26 Say: ‘God alone has knowledge of that. I am only to give a veritable warning.‘
67:27 But when they see it drawing near, the unbelievers‘ faces will be contorted with woe, and a voice will say: ‘This is the doom which you have challenged.‘
67:28 Say: ‘Consider: whether God destroys me and all my followers or has mercy upon us, who will protect the unbelievers from a woeful scourge?‘
67:29 Say: ‘He is the Lord of Mercy: in Him we believe, and in Him we put our trust. You shall soon learn who is in evident error.‘
67:30 Say: ‘Consider: if all the water that you have were to sink down into the earth, who would give you running water in its place?‘
