Benefits of Reading Surah Mulk Every Night

Introduction of Surah Mulk

Surah Mulk 1–30: The whole Quran is special and every part of it is going to have something to benefit you. But is it okay to have a favorite Surah? Or to recite something repeatedly or listen to it. Because it resonates with you in a certain way, maybe because of where you’re at in life at the moment? Absolutely, the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ himself was most moved by the verses that reminded him of his responsibility. The verse in Surah An-Nisaa and how it will be written says we bring forth a witness upon every nation, and we bring you, O Muhammad ﷺ, as a witness upon them. He wept profusely (S.A.W); he couldn’t even handle more of its recitation or the time he spent the entire night reciting just one Ayah and crying.

إِن تُعَذِّبْهُمْ فَإِنَّهُمْ عِبَادُكَ وَإِن تَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ فَإِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْحَكِيمُ

If you punish them, they belong to you after all. But if you forgive them, you are surely the Almighty, All-Wise.

Surah Al-Mulk

Benefits of Surah Al-Mulk

He asked Prophet ﷺ about a man who used to recite Surah Al-Ikhlaas at the end of his recitation in every single prayer, and when he asked his companions to ask the man, Why he recites “Qul Hu Allahu Ahad” so frequently. The man responded and said because it was “Sifatur-Rehman” because it’s a description of the most merciful. I love to read the description of the most merciful. So the Prophet ﷺ said, Go back and tell that man that Allah loves him because of his love for that surah. A person who is in distress may find something extremely beautiful about Surah Yusuf. Ar-Rahman and Surah Ya-Sin are dear to so many people. Then we start to find the Prophet ﷺ talking about how particular Surahs benefit you in the station, so he said to recite the Quran for all the days of resurrection; it will come as an intercessor for its reciters.

Then he said to recite the two brightly (illustrated chapters) like Surah Al-Baqarah and Al-‘Imran. He said, For on the day of resurrection, they will come as if they were two clouds, two shades or two flocks of birds. “TUHAJIANI ‘AN AS-HABIHIMA,” and they will be arguing on behalf of their companions. Imagine a person walking on the day of judgment and Al-Baqarah and Al-‘Iman are like two canopies, two flocks of birds, and two clouds that are following you, and everyone is admiring and wishing they had done so as well, wishing they had committed those Surahs to their memory and acted upon them as well. That’s why the Prophet ﷺ said,

“Recite Surah Al-Baqarah, for doing so produces blessing in this life, and abandoning it produces regret in the next life.”

The Prophet ﷺ also mentioned some of these other short portions that we recite on a daily basis. In another authentic hadith, the Prophet ﷺ said,

“Whoever recites Ayatul Kursi (ALLAHU LAA ILLAHA ILLA HU) after every one of the prescribed prayers, the Prophet ﷺ said, “Nothing is standing between him and his entrance into paradise, except for death.”

Meaning it is guaranteed for him at that point that he’s going to enter into Jannah. So we’ve covered Al-Baqarah, Al-‘Imran, and then Al-Ikhlass and Ayatul Kursi. Now there is one more companion. This is what the scholars say is the persistent intercessor and it is known as the Surah, that is, Al-Maani’a, the preventer; it’s also Al-Munjiyah, the rescuer. And that’s Surah Mulk, the Surah that the Prophet ﷺ said,

That the one who recites it every night will be protected from the punishment of the grave, and some of scholars said that it prevents one from doing the deeds that warrant the punishment of the grave, and its virtue and recitation itself prevent the punishment of the grave.

Surah Mulk is the most beloved and powerful surah. So much so, that the Prophet ﷺ said,

In another narration, there are 30 verses and one surah in the Quran that will show up on the day of judgment.
