Here’s a challenge for everyone who has yet to recite Surah Al Mulk (the 67th chapter of the Qur’an).
Surah Al-Mulk has 30 verses. Simply memorise just one verse of the Surah every day in the month of Ramadan. By the end of the month, you will have memorised the entire Surah insha Allah.
Challenge a Friend
Why not challenge a friend to compete with you in memorising the Surah? There is nothing wrong with competing in good deeds as long as our intention is to please Allah and not to boast or show-off. You can also meet your friend for a few minutes after Taraweeh prayers or call him or her to test one another on the parts you have previously memorised.
If you are married, challenge your spouse and if you have children, challenge them to memorise the Surah and offer them a special prize if they complete it.
Some Virtues of the Surah
“Verily, there is a chapter in the Qur’an which contains thirty verses that will intercede on behalf of its reciter until he is forgiven. (It is): ‘Blessed be He in Whose Hand is the dominion.’ [i.e, Surah Al-Mulk]” (Tirmidhi)
“He (peace and blessing be upon him) used to recite Surah As-Sajdah and Surah Al-Mulk before sleeping.” (Tirmidhi)
‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud 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. (Nasaa’i)
