Surah Al Mulk Rumi: A Surah of Protection and Guidance
Surah Al Mulk Rumi is the 67th surah of the Quran, which is written in the rumi script, a transliteration of the Arabic text into Latin letters. The surah has 30 verses and is classified as a Makki surah, meaning it was revealed in Mecca. The name Al Mulk means \"the kingdom\" or \"the sovereignty\", which refers to the first verse of the surah that praises Allah as the owner of everything in the universe. The surah is also known by other names, such as Tabarak (the blessed), Al Mani'ah (the protector), and Al Waqiyah (the preventer).
The surah is known for its many benefits and virtues for those who recite it regularly. According to a hadith narrated by Abu Hurairah, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: \"There is a surah in the Quran which contains thirty verses that will intercede for a man until his sins are forgiven. This surah is 'Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the kingdom' (Surah Al Mulk)\" [^1^]. Another hadith narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud states that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: \"It is my desire that Surah Al Mulk should be in the heart of every believer\" [^2^]. The surah is also a protection from the punishment of the grave, as reported by Anas ibn Malik, who said that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: \"Surah Tabarak is the protector from the torment of the grave\" [^3^].
The surah teaches us many lessons and reminders about Allah's power, wisdom, mercy, and justice. It invites us to reflect on the signs of Allah in the creation of life and death, the seven heavens, the stars, the earth, and the water. It warns us of the consequences of disbelief and disobedience, and encourages us to be grateful and righteous. It affirms Allah's knowledge and awareness of everything we do and say, and assures us of His forgiveness and reward for those who believe and trust in Him.
Here is the rumi text of Surah Al Mulk with its translation:
1tabÄrakallaÅÄ biyadihil-mulku wa huwa âalÄ kulli syai'in qadÄrBlessed is He in Whose Hand is the kingdom, and He is Able to do all things.
2allaÅÄ khalaqal-mauta wal-áayÄta liyabluwakum ayyukum aásanu âamalÄ, wa huwal-âazÄzul-gafÅrHe Who created death and life to test you as to which of you are best in deed - and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving.
3allaÅÄ khalaqa sabâa samÄwÄtin áibÄqÄ, mÄ tarÄ fÄ khalqir-raámÄni min tafÄwut, farjiâil-baáara hal tarÄ min fuáÅrHe Who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return your vision; do you see any breaks
4áummarjiâil-baáara karrataini yanqalib ilaikal-baáaru khÄsi'aw wa huwa áasÄrThen return your vision twice again. Your vision will return to you humbled while it is fatigued. 061ffe29dd
