77th Surah Al-Mulk 67

Qur'an

  Revealed 77th  

67:1
Blessed is He in whose hand is the kingdom, and He is over all things Powerful -

67:2
[He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed - and He is the Almighty, the Forgiving -

67:3
[And] who created seven heavens, one above another. You do not see in the creation of the Most Gracious any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the heaven]; do you see any breaks?

67:4
Then return [your] vision twice again. [Your] vision will return to you humbled while it is fatigued.

67:5
And We have certainly beautified the [lowest] heaven of this world with lamps and have made them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze.

67:6
And for those who disbelieved in their Lord is the punishment of Hell, and wretched is the destination.

67:7
When they are thrown into it, they hear from it a [dreadful] inhaling while it boils up.

67:8
It almost bursts with rage. Every time a company is thrown into it, its keepers ask them, "Did there not come to you a warner?"

67:9
They will say, "Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said, 'God has not sent down anything. You are not but in great error.'"

67:10
And they will say, "If only we had been listening or reasoning, we would not be among the companions of the Blaze."

67:11
And they will admit their sin, so [it is] alienation for the companions of the Blaze.

67:12
Indeed, those who fear their Lord unseen will have forgiveness and great reward.

67:13
And conceal your speech or publicize it; indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts.

67:14
Does He who created not know, while He is the Subtle, the Aware?

67:15
It is He who made the earth tame for you - so walk among its slopes and eat of His provision - and to Him is the Resurrection.

67:16
Do you feel secure that He who in the heaven would not cause the earth to swallow you and suddenly it would sway?

67:17
Or do you feel secure that He who in the heaven would not send against you a storm of stones? Then you would know how [severe] was My warning.

67:18
And already had those before them denied, and how [terrible] was My reproach.

67:19
Do they not see the birds above them with wings outspread and [sometimes] folded in? None holds them [aloft] except the Most Gracious. Indeed He is, of all things, Seeing.

67:20
Or who is it that could be an army for you to aid you other than the Most Gracious? The disbelievers are not but in delusion.

67:21
Or who is it that could provide for you if He withheld His provision? But they have persisted in insolence and aversion.

67:22
Then is one who walks fallen on his face better guided or one who walks erect on a straight path?

67:23
Say, "It is He who has produced you and made for you hearing and vision *Proverbs 20:12 and feeling; little are you grateful."

67:24
Say, "It is He who has multiplied you throughout the earth, *Genesis 1:28 and to Him you will be gathered."

67:25
And they say, "When is this promise, if you should be truthful?"

67:26
Say, "The knowledge is only with God, and I am only a clear warner."

67:27
But when they see it approaching, the faces of those who disbelieve will be distressed, and it will be said, "This is that for which you used to call."

67:28
Say, "Do you see that God could destroy me and those with me or have mercy upon us? Then who can protect the disbelievers from a painful punishment?"

67:29
Say, "He is the Most Gracious; we have believed in Him, and in Him do we trust. And you will [come to] know who it is that is in clear error."

67:30
Say, "Do you see that if your water was to become sunken [into the earth], who then could bring you flowing water?"
