Book 67


The Kingdom

In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent,
the Merciful.

[67.1]

Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom,
and He has power over all things,

[67.2]

Who created death and life that He may try you-- which of you is best in deeds;
and He is the Mighty,
the Forgiving,

[67.3]

Who created the seven heavens one above another;
you see no incongruity in the creation of the Beneficent God;
then look again,
can you see any disorder?

[67.4]

Then turn back the eye again and again;
your look shall ' come back to you confused while it is fatigued.

[67.5]

And certainly We have adorned this lower heaven with ( lamps and We have made these missiles for the Shaitans,
and We have prepared for them the chastisement of burning.

[67.6]

And for those who disbelieve in their Lord is the punishment of hell,
and evil is the resort.

[67.7]

When they shall be cast therein,
they shall hear a loud moaning of it as it heaves,

[67.8]

Almost bursting for fury.
Whenever a group is cast into it,
its keeper shall ask them:
Did there not come to you a warner?

[67.9]

They shall say:
Yea!
indeed there came to us a warner,
but we rejected (him) and said:
Allah has not revealed anything,
you are only in a great error.

[67.10]

And they shall say:
Had we but listened or pondered,
we should not have been among the inmates of the burning fire.

[67.11]

So they shall acknowledge their sins,
but far will be (forgiveness) from the inmates of the burning fire.

[67.12]

(As for) those who fear their Lord in secret,
they shall surely have forgiveness and a great reward.

[67.13]

And conceal your word or manifest it;
surely He is Cognizant of what is in the hearts.

[67.14]

Does He not know,
Who created?
And He is the Knower of the subtleties,
the Aware.

[67.15]

He it is Who made the earth smooth for you,
therefore go about in the spacious sides thereof,
and eat of His sustenance,
and to Him is the return after death.

[67.16]

Are you secure of those in the heaven that He should not make the earth to swallow you up?
Then lo!
it shall be in a state of commotion.

[67.17]

Or are you secure of those in the heaven that He should not send down upon you a punishment?
Then shall you know how was My warning.

[67.18]

And certainly those before them rejected (the truth),
then how was My disapproval.

[67.19]

Have they not seen the birds above them expanding (their wings) and contracting (them)?
What is it that withholds them save the Beneficent God?
Surely He sees everything.

[67.20]

Or who is it that will be a host for you to assist you besides the Beneficent God?
The unbelievers are only in deception.

[67.21]

Or who is it that will give you sustenance if He should withhold His sustenance?
Nay!
they persist in disdain and aversion.

[67.22]

What!
is he who goes prone upon his face better guided or he who walks upright upon a straight path?

[67.23]

Say:
He it is Who brought you into being and made for you the ears and the eyes and the hearts:
little is it that you give thanks.

[67.24]

Say:
He it is Who multiplied you in the earth and to Him you shall be gathered.

[67.25]

And they say:
When shall this threat be (executed) if you are truthful?

[67.26]

Say:
The knowledge (thereof is only with Allah and I am only a plain warner. =

[67.27]

But when they shall see it nigh,
the faces of those who disbelieve shall be sorry,
and it shall be said;
This is that which you used to call for.

[67.28]

Say:
Have you considered if Allah should destroy me and those with me-- rather He will have mercy on us;
yet who will protect the unbelievers from a painful punishment?

[67.29]

Say:
He is the Beneficent God,
we believe in Him and on Him do we rely,
so you shall come to know who it is that is in clear error.

[67.30]

Say:
Have you considered if your water should go down,
who is it then that will bring you flowing water?
