Today is the fifth day of the #SurahAlMulk30DayChallenge and we are reading and memorizing verse 6 of Surah Al-Mulk.
While verse 5 from Surah Al-Mulk coached us to looked for beauty and function in the creation of Allah s.w.t. like the sky above us, and have faith in Him. Verse 6 warns us of the fate of those who refuse to believe in Allah.
“And for those who disbelieved in their Lord is the punishment of Hell, and wretched is the destination.” Surah Al-Mulk, Verse 6
Previous verse mentions that the Allah s.w.t. made the stars as missiles for the devils and He prepared for them the doom of flame. In this verse Allah warns us from following their footsteps. For those who disbelieve in Allah they will share the same fate and are going to the same destination.
As believers we should be aware of our direction and emphasize on growing our Imaan and Ilm, faith and knowledge. A servant with strong Imaan and knowledge will not be easily misdirected. By reading, understanding and memorizing verses from the Quran we are increasing our faith and also our knowledge. Below is a hadith narrating the benefits of memorizing Surah Al-Mulk;
Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that Allah’s Messenger (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) 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.’”
[This Hadith was collected by At-Tirmidhi and the four Sunan Compilers. At-Tirmidhi said concerning it, “This is a Hasan Hadith.”]
He (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to recite Surah As-Sajdah and Surah Al-Mulk (in Arabic) before sleeping.
[Reference: At-Tirmithi, An-Nasa’i. See also Al-Albani, Sahihul-Jami ’ As-Saghir 4/255]
I hope this motivates you to read, understand and memorize verse 6 from Surah Al-Mulk.
InsyaAllah if Allah wills, i see you tomorrow.
