Importance of Suratul Mulk

Excellence and importance of Sooratul Mulk. The following sayings of the Messenger peace be on him are enough to understand its importance.

Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that Allah’s Messenger said,

إنَّ سُورَةً في القُرآنِ ثَلَاثِينَ آيَةً شَفَعَتْ لِصَاحِبِهَا حَتَّي غُفِرَ لَهُ: تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ المُلْكُ.

Transliteration: inna sooratan fil Qur’ane thaatheena aayatan shafa’at leswahebehaa hatta ghufeera lah: Tabaarakallazee beyadehel mulk.

Verily, there is a chapter in the Qur’an which contains thirty Ayaat that will intercede on behalf of its reciter until he is forgiven. (It is): Blessed be He in Whose Hand is the dominion.

This Hadith was collected by At-Tirmidhi and the four Sunan Compilers.

At-Tirmidhi said concerning it, “This is a Hasan Hadith.”

At-Tabarani and Al-Hafiz Ad-Diya’ Al-Maqdisi both recorded from Anas that the Messenger of Allah said,

سُورَةٌ فِي القُرآنِ خَاصَمَتْ عَنْ صَاحِبِهَا حَتَّي أدْخَلَتْهُ الجَنَّةَ: تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ المُلْكُ.

Transliteration: sooratun fil Quraane khaaswamat ‘an swaahebehaa hatta ad_khalat_hul Jannah: Tabaarakallazee beyadehil mulk.

Meaning: There is a chapter of the Qur’an that will argue on behalf of its reciter until it causes him to enter into Paradise. (It is):  Blessed be He in Whose Hand is the dominion.

It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: Whoever reads Tabaarak allaahi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk] every night, Allaah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) we used to call it al-maani’ah المَانِعَةُ  (that which protects). In the Book of Allaah it is a soorah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well.

Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 6/179; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1475.

Jabir (raa) said it was the custom of the Prophet (saws) not to go to sleep until he had read Tabarakalladhi Biyadihil Mulk (i.e. Surah Mulk) and Alif Laam Meem Tanzeel. [Ahmad, Tirmidhi and Darami]

Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) said, “I wish that “Blessed is the Dominion” would be in the heart of every believer.” (Al-Hakim in Al-Mustadrak 1/253 and Qurtabi in his commentary 17/205.)

Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) said, “It is a protector; a rescuer; saving from the chastisement of the grave.” (At-Tirmidhi and Al-Hakim.)
