Quran Surah 67 - Al-Mulk (The Kingdom)
Ayat 1 - BLESSED BE HE who holds the (reins of) Kingship in His hand, who has power over everything,
Ayat 2 - Who created death and life in order to try you to see who of you are best of deed. He is all-mighty and forgiving,
Ayat 3 - Who created the seven skies one above the other. Do you see any disproportion in the creations of Ar-Rahman? Turn your eyes again. Do you see any fissures?
Ayat 4 - Turn your eyes again and again. Your gaze turns back dazed and tired.
Ayat 5 - We have adorned the lowest sky with lamps, and made them missiles against the devils, for whom We have prepared a torment of most intense fire.
Ayat 6 - For those who believe not in their Lord there is the punishment of Hell; and what a wretched destination
Ayat 7 - When they are cast into it, they will hear it roar and raging
Ayat 8 - As though it would burst with fury. Every time a crowd is thrown into it, its wardens will ask: "Did no warner come to you?"
Ayat 9 - And they will answer: "Surely; a warner came to us, but we denied him, and said: ´God did not send down any thing; you are greatly deluded, in fact.´"
Ayat 10 - They will say: "If we had listened and been wise, we would not have been among the inmates of Hell."

Ayat 12 - For those who fear their Lord in secret is forgiveness and a great reward.
Ayat 13 - Whether you say a thing secretly or openly, He knows the innermost secrets of your hearts.
Ayat 14 - Can He who has created not know (His creation)? He is all-penetrating, all-aware.
Ayat 15 - It is lie who made the earth subservient to you that you may travel all around it, and eat of things He has provided; and to Him will be your resurrection.
Ayat 16 - Are you so unafraid that He who is in Heaven will not open up the earth to swallow you, when it will begin to tremble?
Ayat 17 - Or have you become so unafraid that He who is in Heaven will not send a violent wind to shower stones at you? Then you will know the import of My commination!
Ayat 18 - Those before them had also denied. And how was My punishment then!
Ayat 19 - Do they not see the birds above them flying wings spread out or folded? Nothing holds them aloft but God. All things are within His purview.
Ayat 20 - What other army do you have to help you apart from Ar-Rahman? The unbelievers are surely lost in delusion.
Ayat 21 - Who is there to give you food in case He withholds His bounty? Yet they persist in rebellion and aversion.
Ayat 22 - Will he find the way who grovels flat on his face, or he who walks straight on the right path?

Ayat 24 - Say: "It is He who dispersed you all over the earth, and to Him you will be gathered."
Ayat 25 - But they say: "When will this promise come to pass, if what you say is true?"
Ayat 26 - Say: "God alone has knowledge. My duty is only to warn you clearly."

Ayat 28 - Say: "Just think: If God destroys me and those with me, or is benevolent to us, who will then protect the unbelievers from a painful doom?"
Ayat 29 - Say: "He is the benevolent; in Him do we believe, and in Him do we place our trust. You will now realise who is in manifest error."
Ayat 30 - Say: "Just think: If your water were to dry up in the morning who will bring you water from a fresh, flowing stream?"
