The King of The Kings (مالك الملك) (Know Your Lord)

 Allah  says in Surah Mulk

تَبَٰرَكَ ٱلَّذِى بِيَدِهِ ٱلْمُلْكُ

Blessed be He in Whose hand is the Dominion.

Allah  glorifies His Noble Self and informs that the dominion is in His Hand. This means that He deals with all of His creatures however He wishes and there is none who can reverse His decree. For this reason Allah say;

وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ قَدِيرٌ

 and He is Able to do all things.


Meaning, He is able to do All things, whether you pray for it or not, whether you want it or not, whether you feel it is good for you or not, nothing overrides the Qadr and the Will of Allah .

This is why, when we look at Nature.

How was the Sky created, raised and held without any support?

How was the eye of the Human created, that no lens has ever matched its clarity and quality?

This was only possible through Allah 

احسن الخالقين

The Best of Creators.

He  provided the Kings and Celebrities that we admire with their wealth and status,

He provided them with power,

And He has provided us, with our Rizq and everything else.

Yet we have forgotten مالك الملك and we opted to glorify His slaves that aren't even Believers.

Ibn Umar رضي الله عنه narrates the Hadith, where Allah  will say "I am the King, I am the Compeller, I am the Proud, where are the kings of the earth? Where are the tyrants? Where are the proud?

[Sahih Muslim]

As Allah  says in Surah Al-Infitar

يَوْمَ لَا تَمْلِكُ نَفْسٌۭ لِّنَفْسٍۢ شَيْـًۭٔا ۖ

A day when no soul shall have power over another soul.

Meaning, no one will be able to benefit anyone else, or help him out of that which he will be in, unless Allah  gives permission to whomever He wishes.

وَٱلْأَمْرُ يَوْمَئِذٍۢ لِّلَّهِ

And the Command on that day will be only for Allah.


Meaning, Everyone will be helpless against Allah  on this day, and nobody will dispute his command over it.

May Allah  shower His abundant mercy on us and protect us from His wrath.
