Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall's Translation

Surah Mulk ulk: The Sovereignty

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

067.001 Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Sovereignty, and, He is Able to do all things.
067.002 Who hath created life and death that He may try you which of you is best in conduct; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving,
067.003 Who hath created seven heavens in harmony. Thou (Muhammad) canst see no fault in the Beneficent One's creation; then look again: Canst thou see any rifts?
067.004 Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return unto thee weakened and made dim.
067.005 And verily We have beautified the world's heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for the devils, and for them We have prepared the doom of flame.
067.006 And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the doom of hell, a hapless journey's end!
067.007 When they are flung therein they hear its roaring as it boileth up,
067.008 As it would burst with rage. Whenever a (fresh) host is flung therein the wardens thereof ask them: Came there unto you no warner?
067.009 They say: Yea, verily, a warner came unto us; but we denied and said: Allah hath naught revealed; ye are in naught but a great error.
067.010 And they say: Had we been wont to listen or have sense, we had not been among the dwellers in the flames.
067.011 So they acknowledge their sins; but far removed (from mercy) are the dwellers in the flames.
067.012 Lo! those who fear their Lord in secret, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward.
067.013 And keep your opinion secret or proclaim it, lo! He is Knower of all that is in the breasts (of men).
067.014 Should He not know what He created? And He is the Subtile, the Aware.
067.015 He it is Who hath made the earth subservient unto you, so Walk in the paths thereof and eat of His providence. And unto Him will be the resurrection (of the dead).
067.016 Have ye taken security from Him Who is in the heaven that He will not cause the earth to swallow you when lo! it is convulsed?
067.017 Or have ye taken security from Him Who is in the heaven that He will not let loose on you a hurricane? But ye shall know the manner of My warning.
067.018 And verily those before them denied, then (see) the manner of My wrath (with them)!
067.019 Have they not seen the birds above them spreading out their wings and closing them? Naught upholdeth them save the Beneficent. Lo! He is Seer of all things.
067.020 Or who is he that will be an army unto you to help you instead of the Beneficent? The disbelievers are in naught but illusion.
067.021 Or who is he that will provide for you if He should withhold His providence? Nay, but they are set in pride and frowardness.
067.022 Is he who goeth groping on his face more rightly guided, or he who walketh upright on a straight road?
067.023 Say (unto them, O Muhammad): He it is who gave you being, and hath assigned unto you ears and eyes and hearts. Small thanks give ye!
067.024 Say: He it is Who multiplieth you in the earth, and unto Whom ye will be gathered.
067.025 And they say: When (will) this promise (be fulfilled), if ye are truthful?
067.026 Say: The knowledge is with Allah only, and I am but a plain warner;
067.027 But when they see it nigh, the faces of those who disbelieve will be awry, and it will be said (unto them): This is that for which ye used to call.
067.028 Say (O Muhammad): Have ye thought: Whether Allah causeth me (Muhammad) and those with me to perish or hath mercy on us, still, who will protect the disbelievers from a painful doom?
067.029 Say: He is the Beneficent. In Him we believe and in Him we put our trust. And ye will soon know who it is that is in error manifest.
067.030 Say: Have ye thought: If (all) your water were to disappear into the earth, who then could bring you gushing water?

 

Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
