(67:1) Blessed is He1 in Whose Hand is the dominion of the Universe,2 and Who has power over everything;3 (67:2) Who created death and life that He might try you as to which of you is better in deed.4 He is the Most Mighty, the Most Forgiving;5 (67:3) Who created the seven heavens one upon another.6 You will see no incongruity in the Merciful One's creation.7 Turn your vision again, can you see any flaw?8 (67:4) Then turn your vision again, and then again; in the end your vision will come back to you, worn out and frustrated. (67:5) We have adorned the lower heaven9 with lamps,10 and have made them a means to drive away the satans.11 We have prepared for them the chastisement of the Blazing Fire. (67:6) The chastisement of Hell awaits those who disbelieve in their Lord.12 What a wretched destination! (67:7) When they will be cast into it, they will hear it roar as it boils,13 (67:8) as though it will burst with rage. Every time a multitude is cast into it, its keepers will ask them: “Did no warner come to you?”14 (67:9) They will say: “Yes, a warner came to us, but we gave the lie to him and said: 'Allah has revealed nothing. You are surely in huge error.'15 (67:10) They will say: 'If we had only listened and understood,16 we would not be among the inmates of the Blazing Fire.'” (67:11) Thus will they confess their sins.17 Damned are these inmates of the Blazing Fire. (67:12) Surely forgiveness and a mighty reward19 await those who fear Allah without seeing Him.18 (67:13) Whether you speak in secrecy or aloud, (it is all the same to Allah). He even knows the secrets that lie hidden in the chests of people.20(67:14) Would He not know, He Who has created,21 when He is All-Subtle,22 All-Aware?
