Surah Al-Mulk

Tafseer of Surah Al-Mulk (verse 2-3)

Allah Almighty said in Surah Mulk, ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلْمَوْتَ وَٱلْحَيَوٰةَ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًۭا وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْغَفُورُ and we explained that previously that Allah Almighty is the one who created death and life, to see who is doing the best deed? (وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْغَفُورُ) and he is exalted in might and the most forgiving. As I was telling you that Allah Almighty created death and life and the purpose, the hikmah, the wisdom behind making these two things from Allah Almighty is (لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًۭا), he will put you into a test so he will see who did his best in this life? did best of what? Doing best from your deeds, we are here to do amel as it says in Surah Al-Mulk, (أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًۭا) means to work to do your deeds to connect your deeds. So, what kind of deeds are you doing in this world good deeds or bad deeds? Which path you are selecting which path you are choosing and going on because, in the end, Allah (SWT) says there is death and life for you to do your best. What did you do? Are you just following the path of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in your life? Are you applying his sunnah his saying his traditions and his way of life in your life, Are you following the commandment of Allah Almighty, the creator in your life?

Are you trying to apply this within your family within your community within your society, or you’ve just collected the deeds of your own desire, I want to do this, I will do it, I want to drink this, I will drink it, I want to eat something, which is not reprintable, you will eat it or you will smoke something or you will do something, you’re just following your desire doesn’t matter, whatever you are doing, you’re collecting right and as I said, after collecting, once we die and once we will be resurrected on the day of judgment, you have to pay for every single deed that you collected. I’ll give you an example, if you are in the supermarket, you have a big massive supermarket and you have a trolley in your hand, you know, in front of you and you’re pushing that trolley.

Surah Al-Mulk

It doesn’t matter now, what you’re doing, you might put this product or that product, or the most expensive or the silliest product or most you know, the good or the bad product, so whatever you want to do, you just keep dumping everything without thinking your trolley. What will happen if you go from one place to another place from one lane to another lane, and you keep going? It’s a massive supermarket and you’re having this trolley and it doesn’t matter if you think that you know there’s my wish my will. You keep putting your stuff into dumping your stuff in your trolley and you will go to maybe from the first floor to the second, third fourth. You’re going on and on and on hold on, think that in the end, you have to pay for every single thing that you kept and put in your trolley, this is just a small example similarly whatever you want to do okay say you’re free okay fine, no one watching me I’m 18 year old and above and whatever these rules and regulations that people are putting nowadays that 18, above 18 and below 18 and all these things it doesn’t matter it’s your wish what you want to do but at the end you have to pay for every single action that you did if it was good it’s good, it’s bad.

Allah Almighty said, what he finished and completed the verse by saying in Surah Al-Mulk (وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْغَفُورُ). He is al-aziz the exalted in might, Al-khafur the most forgiven, and every time there is also hikmah wisdom behind all these names that Allah Almighty describes himself with the names and the attribute of Allah (SWT). You will find in many places in the Quran that he ends the verse with some names like, Al-Khafur, Ar-Raheem, Al-Rahman, Al-Karim, and all these names for example right? So what is the wisdom behind using these names? Specifically in this Ayah in this verse, Allah Almighty says in Surah e Mulk (وَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْغَفُورُ) and he is the exalted in might means that if anyone will do good or the bad if anyone is doing bad he is exalted and might, he does not care he will put those who disobeyed him who disbelieved in him, he will put them into the punishment and he will put them into the hell fire. It doesn’t matter but those who repented people who repented from this category or those who did good deeds of Allah Almighty will threaten them with his other name Al-khafur the most forgiving. That’s why Allah Almighty or this is the reason and this is the hikmah the wisdom that Allah Almighty used these two names specifically in this Ayah.

Not only that Allah Almighty then continued with the third verse of the verse number three. So, what he says,

ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ سَبْعَ سَمَـٰوَٰتٍۢ طِبَاقًۭا مَّا تَرَىٰ فِى خَلْقِ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ مِن تَفَـٰوُتٍ فَٱرْجِعِ ٱلْبَصَرَهَلْ تَرَىٰ مِن فُطُورٍۢ

Which means, who created seven heavens in layers you do not see in the creation of the most merciful any inconsistency so return your vision to the sky and you will or do you see or do you will see any breaks any cracks this is the translation of the Ayah but, let’s go again word by word and try to feel and ponder upon each and every word Allah Almighty again saying about himself the one what about him خَلَقَ سَبْعَ سَمَـٰوَٰتٍۢ طِبَاقًۭا he is the one who created seven skies in layers imagine the one who is creating seven skies one after another this huge creation of Allah Almighty that is there without any pillars it is there without any things to hold them Allah Almighty just created them one after another so Allah Almighty saying that, خَلَقَ سَبْعَ سَمَـٰوَٰتٍۢ طِبَاقًۭا the one who created these seven skies layers after layers. Imagine these layers what the prophet Muhammad said about these layers, what is the distance from one sky to another it says in the authentic narration that masira is the distance from one sky to another sky messier, it’s a journey it’s a speed or it’s a destination of 500 years and from the second till the third, it’s 500 years from the third till fourth five hundred years fourth to five hundred years five till sixth five hundred years from sixth sky till the seventh sky 500 years Allahu Akbar.


Imagine all these numbers can you imagine and after that what is there (The throne of Allah Almighty) the most merciful above that, so we are just describing the سَبْعَ سَمَـٰوَٰتٍۢ and we cannot even comprehend and understand the majesty of Allah Almighty, this lord should be or deserve to be worshipped. Take care of yourself by that time (ٱلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ) Surah Al-Mulk.
