The Holy Quran is the final Sacred Book of Allah SWT that He revealed on His Last Prophet, Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ over the course of 23 years. Holy Quran has a refreshing, uplifting and revitalizing effect on a person who believes in Allah and wants to become closer to Him. Besides religious benefits in the form of rewards, there are other benefits and blessings of Quran, which one misses by not reciting it on regular bases.
In one of Hadith of Prophet (ﷺ) there is an explanation of getting rewards on every letter that someone recited from Holy Quran in these words:
“Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah, he will have a reward, and this reward will be multiplied by ten. I am not saying that ‘Alif, Laam, Meem’ (a combination of letters frequently mentioned in the Holy Quran) is a letter, rather I am saying that ‘Alif’ is a letter, ‘Laam’ is a letter and ‘Meem’ is a letter.”(Tirmidhi).
Surah Al-Mulk is the 67th chapter of the Quran. It is a Makki surah. The surah consists of 30 verses. Surat al-Mulk is one of the great Surahs of the Quran which we are encouraged in authentic reports to recite frequently.
Surah Al-Mulk Virtues and Benefits:
Intercedes until Forgiven
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“A surah from the Quran containing thirty verses will intercede for a man so that he will be forgiven. It is the surah Tabaarak Alathi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Surah al-Mulk].”
Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2891; Abu Dawood, 1400; Ibn Maajah, 3786.
Saves from punishment of grave
It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said:
Whoever reads Tabaarak allaahi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Surah al-Mulk] every night, Allah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) we used to call it al-maani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allah it is a surah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well.
Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 6/179; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1475.
It is Sunnah
According to the hadith of Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him),
the Prophet (ﷺ) did not sleep until he recited Alif-Lam-Mim tanzil (Surat as-Sajdah) and Tabarak alladhi bi yahihi al-mulk (Surat al-Mulk).
Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2892; Al-Albaani said in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi(3/6) that this hadeeth is saheeh. Source: islamqa.info
