Spiritual peace through Surah Mulk


How to gain Spiritual peace through “Surah Mulk”


Certainly, in these current times, we have our fears and anxieties. In other words, reflecting on current times makes us feel overwhelmed as the times have become too uncertain. However, there is a way through which we can gain spiritual peace and that is through Quran and Salah. Surah Mulk, 67th chapter of the Quran does this well. In other words, it helps us gain peace and empowers us. Further, surah Mulk takes away our uncertainties and brings light and peace which helps us lessen our fears and burdens.


Give yourself to The One in control  


“Blessed is He in whose hand is dominion, and He is over all things competent.”


Certainly, in these times no one is in control. In other words, we are all vulnerable. There is no one in this world that is able to control any situation. For example, there is no one who has the power to control Coronavirus and the disaster it has created and is creating.

However, in this verse, we are clearly informed that Allah; the Almighty is The One Who is in command of this world. There is no one who has any authority over the world. He is The One Who is in control of the world.


Surah Mulk teaches us to accept death


“[He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed – and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving.”  (67:2)

Certainly, the modern world is far from the acceptance of death. In other words, we have a lot of love for this world, therefore we have forgotten about the reality of death. However, in this Ayat, Allah highlights the fact that He created death. Further, the time and place of death have also been decreed even before our existence. Having this reality in mind and knowing that no soul can experience death without Allah’s permission, we become peaceful and our panic regarding the miseries of life is lessened. We get stressed because of the virus, however what we need to realize is that any soul that experiences death shall be Allah’s will and we need to accept His will and commands.

Moreover, instead of panicking over the situation, we must make dua to our Lord and plead Him for mercy and forgiveness. In other words, we must always prepare ourself for death and must keep seeking forgiveness at all times.

Thirdly, we also need to realize that death is not the end of the world, in fact, it is only a new beginning. This world is temporary and so are its matters. Therefore taking this world and its matters too seriously is not healthy and beneficial for Muslims. We must accept it peacefully that this world is temporary and is meant to come to an end. And what better than going back to Allah; our Creator. He is The One Who is most merciful and forgiving. Therefore going back to Him cannot and must be not a situation that we fear, in fact, it must be one that we await and long for.




Not just Surah Mulk, but the entire Quran makes us peaceful and bring about the best in peace. Further, it also helps in lessening our worldly worries. So we must recite the Quran and understand it not because Allah needs our worship, but because it the only source of peace for us in this world. Therefore, QuraOnline comes with its expert Quran tutors and relevant Quran courses for Muslims of all ages to understand it in detail.
