Introduction of Surah Al Mulk:

Surah Mulk exists in the last part of the Holy Quran and it  was revealed to the Prophet (PBUH)in Makkah  Mukarma. The meaning of this surah is   freedom, liberty, autonomy, or sovereignty.

It talks about the greatness of Allah and the beautiful universe that he has created. It reminds people to consider the beauty  of the universe He has created.  At the start of the surah Mulk Allah (SWT) said that:

Blessed is he in whose hand is the dominion, and he is over all things competent”. (67:1)

Let’s talk about the benefits of reciting Surah Al Mulk:

  1.  Protection from the torment of the grave.
  2.  If you recite before sleeping ALLAH will send an angel to protect you.
  3. It will intervene with Allah to forgive on the Day of Judgment.
  4. The Holy prophet gave priority to Surah Al  Mulk.
  5. This surah is the prevention for the punishment of the grave.

1) Protection from the torment of the grave:

When a person dies and is placed in the grave his assessment starts from ALLAH through the angels. If he recites surah Mulk on a daily basis in this world, it protects him from the torment of the grave . Surah Mulk proves as a blessing in a difficult situation..  Abd_Allah ibn Masood said that:

“Whoever reads تَبَـٰرَكَ ٱلَّذِى بِيَدِهِ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ قَدِيرٌ every night, Allah will protect him from the torment of the grave”.

2) If you recite before sleeping Allah sends an angel to protect you:

When we are going to bed for sleep, if we recite surah Mulk on a lying bed ALLAH (SWT)   assigns an angel who gives us a bulwark from all bad spirits and harms us until morning. Hazrat Jaabir ibn Abdullah Ansari (Allah be pleased with him) said that

“The beloved holy prophet (PBUH) never slept without reciting surah Alif laam meem Tanzeel (surah sajdah) and surah Tabarak (Surah Al Mulk)“.

3) It will intervene with Allah to forgive on the Day of Judgment:

On the day of reckoning, when everyone is agitated about his consequence, then Surah al Mulk will intercede , for those who recited it. It will  intercede for its companion until he is forgiven. This point shows the blessing of the Quran.

4) The holy prophet(PBUH) gave the priority to Surah Al Mulk:

Surah Al Mulk plays a vital role in the absolution on the day of doomsday. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said that “verily the grave is the first step in the stages of the hereafter.

If one finds salvation at this stage, the succeeding stages become easy for him. And if he does not find salvation at this stage, what follows this stage is very hard upon him. I have never seen a site more horrible than that of the grave.

5) This surah is the prevention of the punishment of the grave:

We can get a lot of benefits  through the reciting of the surah al Mulk even after  we die. Abdullah ibn Masud said that when the punishment of the grave approaches from the direction of the head, it is held back and it is said to it:    

                “Do not come near him, for he has learned Mulk“.


Reciting Surah al Mulk proves beneficial in this world and the hereafter. Our prophet(PBUH) recited it because it provided a bundle of virtues. If we recite the Quran and some surahs on a daily basis then we can receive many blessings.

When we recite a single word of the Quran ALLAH (SWT) we receive ten virtues per word.

Ibn Masud  a companion of the Prophet (PBUH)narrates that 

“Whoever recites a letter of the book of Allah has one good deed and one good deed is worth ten similar to it. I do not say Alif, laam meem is a letter rather alif is the letter; laam is a letter and meem is  a letter”

This hadith points out the innumerable benefits of reading, reciting and learn the Quran.
