Surah Al-Mulk is the 67th chapter of the Quran. It contains 30 verses (ayat) and is a Makki surah, meaning it was revealed in the city of Makkah before the Prophet Muhammad’s migration to Madinah. The chapter is named after the Arabic word “Mulk,” which translates to “Dominion” or “Sovereignty.”
Surah Al-Mulk serves as a reminder of the greatness and power of Allah as the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. It emphasizes the signs in the natural world as evidence of God’s existence and control over all things. The chapter also highlights the consequences of disbelief and the importance of contemplating the universe to recognize the truth of the message brought by the Prophet Muhammad.
The surah offers a call to reflect on the temporary nature of worldly possessions and to turn towards God in sincere worship and submission. Many Muslims recite Surah Al-Mulk regularly, often before sleeping, as it is believed to offer protection and blessings to the reciter in the Hereafter.
