Sura Al Mulk in Quran

Last Updated on May 3, 2024 by Nadeem Ahmad

The Sura al Mulk in the Quran is a short chapter that contains some important teachings about Islam. The ayahs in this chapter are brief but describe the basic characteristics of Islam. People succeed in life only by performing good deeds. Surah Mulk also contains a number of instructions about prayer.

Chapter 76 of the Quran

Sura al Mulk is a chapter in the Quran that deals with the topic of belief and the punishment of disbelievers. There are three objectives of this surah: to prove the greatness of Allah, to establish his oneness, and to explain the consequences of people who deny him and his resurrection.

The final verse of Sura al Mulk proclaims the Divine Promise of Support and Forgiveness for believers. Fear and love cannot exist on an equal footing in human affairs. They have opposite connotations. Fear is a reaction to the unknown and the Divine is a loving one. The best way to know Him is through observation and exactitude. You must love the Divine and obey Him.

Meaning of ayahs

The Arabic word Mulk has several meanings that relate to the theme of the surah. The word itself means “dominion,” “kingdom,” or even “sovereignty.” It occurs 8-9 times in Sura al Mulk, and has meanings that indicate the global ruler ship of Allah. In addition to establishing the oneness of Allah, Mulk refers to the Twelfth Imam and his Dhikr, as well as the servant of the Bab.

The word jund has many different interpretations. The Arabic word jund, for example, originally denoted a rough, uneven surface. Now, however, it has the connotation of an army or a host. However, some Qur’anic exegetes maintain that jund also refers to idols. In any case, the context of the verse is so vast and varied that it is difficult to pinpoint just one element, let alone a single interpretation.

Characteristics of ayahs

The word mulk in the first sentence of Sura al Mulk is related to the word malakut in verse 83 of surah Ya-sin. Both words mean dominion. They describe Allah as the lord of the visible and the invisible worlds. This verse shows that there is no separation between God’s power and His beneficence. Furthermore, the word mulk means that Allah is the sole owner of everything in the universe, and that nobody can claim ownership of it.

The preceding blessed verse also refers to the causes of human misfortune. In particular, the term tafawut (out of proportion) implies that human beings disobey Allah and transgress His bounds. Thus, ayahs from Sura al Mulk refer to people who act in disobedient ways, who are prone to tafawut (disobedience).

Recitation of ayahs

One of the most important sahihs in the Quran is Surah Mulk. According to the Prophet Muhammad, reciting this surah before sleeping protects the reciter from punishments and angels come down to protect the reciter during his sleep. The Prophet also recommended the recitation of Surah Mulk before going to bed. The benefits of this surah are far greater than people would think.

This surah is the 67th chapter of the Holy Quran. In other words, this surah is about salvation and a life beyond death. Reciting it daily is essential for the protection of the Muslim.

Recitation of ayahs at night

Recitation of ayahs at night is permissible in the Quran but not compulsory. This is because the Hadith relating to this matter is rather general in nature and the Prophet did not specify a specific time for its recitation. However, the recitation of the Surah will provide the reciter with protection from the punishment of the grave.

The recitation of the ayahs in Surah Al Mulk has many benefits. Firstly, it protects the reciter from the torment of the grave and subsequently, the punishment of Hell. In addition, the Sunnah says that reciting it at night will grant the reciter entrance into Paradise.

Protection from shayateen

It contains 114 verses and 6,236 letters. If recited daily, it can protect you from harm. The word Mulk is the same as the word malakut in surah Ya-sin. The verses of the Qur’an demonstrate that there is no distinction between power and beneficence, and they also clarify how Allah is different from man. However, they are not the only verses of the Quran on this subject.
