Surat ul-Mulk (Arabic: سورة الملك‎) (The Sovereignty, Control; literally 'the kingdom') is the 67th sura (chapter) of the Qur'an, comprising 30 ayat. The name of this sura refers to Malik al Mulk (Arabic: مالك الملك‎) 'The Owner of All Sovereignty', literally 'king of the realm', one of the 99 Names of Allah. The sura preaches the infinite power of Allah and states that those who reject warnings of Prophets will be companions of the Blazing Fire, meaning they will be punished in Hell.

It has been told in Hadith that Prophet Muhammad has said that if every night Surat ul-Mulk is recited, then the reciter shall be protected from the tortures of the grave.

Virtues

The Prophet said, ‘There is a surah in the Qur’an which is only thirty verses. It defended whoever recited it until it puts him into paradise’ i.e. Surah al Mulk

[Fath al Qadir 5/257, Sahihul Jamiea 1/680, Tabrani in Al-Awsat & Ibn Mardawaith]


Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah said, “The Qur’an contains a surah of thirty ayats which will intercede for a man until he is forgiven. It is: ‘Blessed be He who has the Kingdom in His Hand!’ (67)”

[abu Dawud, Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, Riyad as-Salihin by Imam an-Nawawi Ch.183 #1016]


The Prophet said, ‘Surah al Mulk is the protector from the torment of the grave’

Anas reported Rasulullah as saying, “There is a Surah which will plead for its reciter till it causes him to enter paradise.”

[at-Tabrani]


Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas reported that the Prophet said, ‘It is my desire/love that Surahtul Mulk should be in the heart of every Muslim’

[Hakim, al-Hisnul Haseen by the cassical scholar Muhammad al-Jazri]


Ibn Abbas said that one of the Prophet’s companions set up his tent over a grave without realising that it was a grave and it contained a man who was reciting the Surah Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk up to the end. He went and told the Prophet who said, ‘It is The Defender; it is The Protector which safeguards from Allah Ta’ala’s punishment’

[at-Tirmidhi]


Khalid bin Madam (tabie) said about surat Al Mulk and ‘As Sajda that these two surahs will fight for their reciter in the grave and will say, ‘O Allah! If we belong to your book, accept our intercession in his favour. In case we do not, get us obliterated. These surahs will spread their wings like birds and will save the person from the torment of the grave.’

[Mishkat al-Misbah]


It was narrated that Abdullah ibn Mas’ud said: Whoever reads Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk [i.e. Surah al-Mulk] every night, Allah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allah we used to call it al-mani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allah it is a surah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well.
