Al Mulk V.1-30
Sidra Dastgir (Al Huda Student)
‘Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood said: “Whoever reads ‘al-Mulk’ every night, Allaah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihiwasallam), we used to call it al-mani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allah, there is a chapter [and] whoever recites it every night has done very well.” [Sahih at-Targhib wat-Tarhib, no. 1475]
Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) that Allah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihiwasallam) said, “Verily, there is a chapter in the Qur’an which contains thirty Ayat that will intercede on behalf of its reciter until he is forgiven. (It is): ‘Blessed be He in Whose Hand is the dominion.’”
I loved surah mulk and what struck me from surah mulk was that fact that the quran can be my friend in the grave. Just as a doll or a blanket is to a child. The quran would protect me from the punishments of the grave. And by just reciting a few ayat everynight i am guranteed protection is an amazing thing for me. subhanallah, this is truly the kalam of allah, and inshallah it will do me justice.
