As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Salamu alaykum,

He who is Recitating Suratul Mulk in the night will be free from the troment of grave. Hadith

 

My question is;

1. Pls. must this be recited before going to bed or it can be done while praying Nafil in the night. Last part of the night.

2. Is it enough to recite the surah while praying Nafil or it has to be recited out of Salat.

Need more explanation as to the hadith and specifically the right time to do that.

 

Muassalam.

Usaini.

Answer:

 

Recitation of surah mulk at night

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Al-Muwatta Hadith 15.19

Yahya related from Malik from Ibn Shihab that Humayd ibn Abd ar-Rahman ibn Awf had told him that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said that Surat al-Ikhlas (Sura 112) was equal to a third of the Qur'an, and that Surat al-Mulk (Sura 67) pleaded for its owner.

 

Dear and beloved brother in Islam, to the best of our knowledge we have not come across any narration in the authentic and established Sunnah where the Messenger of Allah (saws) guided the believers to recite the blessed Surah Al-Mulk only at nights! One may recite this blessed Surah anytime one wills and pleases and avail of its merits and rewards, Insha Allah.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.536A Narrated by Aisha

Whenever the Prophet (saws) went to bed every night, he used to cup his hands together and blow over it after reciting Surah 112 Al-Ikhlas, Surah 113 Al-Falaq and Surah 114 An-Naas, and then rub his hands over whatever parts of his body he was able to reach, starting with his head, face and the front of his body. He (saws) used to do that three times.

 

The Prophet (saws) once advised his beloved daughter Fatimah (r.a.): "Say Subhan-Allah thirty three times, Al-hamdu-lillah thirty three times, and Allahu Akbar thirty four times." He (saws) also commended the recitation of Ayatal-Kursi, the verse of the Throne, Quran 2.255 along with the above glorifications, and said that he who does so will be under the protection of Allah, Who will assign a protector to protect him.

 

Amongst the general practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws) when he (saws) retired to bed for the night would be to recite the last three Surahs of the Quran thrice, praised, glorified and supplicated to the Lord as much as Allah Willed, and recited the Verse of the Throne (Quran 2:255).

 

Your Statement: He who is Recitating Suratul Mulk in the night will be free from the troment of grave. Hadith

Beloved Brother in Islam, in spite of our best efforts, we were unable to locate this narration in any of the authentic and established Books of Sunnah, nor did we find mention of this statement in any of the four major schools of thought or madhabs. If you could kindly give us the exact reference number or location of the above statement, we would try to the best of our ability to verify its authenticity, Insha Allah.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
