King of Kings : Al Malik

Allah has three Names that are similar to Malik: Maleek (مليك) and Maalik (مالك). The meaning for all three names is: One who possesses the attribute of Mulk. What is Mulk? Kingdom, dominion, power, authority. Mulk has three meanings:

1)      Possession and ownership (لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ To Him belongs the Ownership of the heavens and earth 2:107)

2)      Control and authority (لَكُمُ الْمُلْكُ الْيَوْمَ For you in the authority this day 40:29)

3)      Ability and power (لاَ يَمْلِكُونَ They do not possess ability 13:16)

We are living in one biiiigg kingdom. This big kingdom encompasses the whole of earth, the whole space, known and unknown. The whole of heaven and the whole of earth. A kingdom so big, even bigger than what you can imagine.

And the King of this Kingdom is Allah – Al Malik – the King of All Kings!

Allah is the King of heavens and earth, their owner, the only Owner, and the only Ruling Judge on the Day of Recompense.

Al Mu’minoon 23: 16
So Exalted is Allâh, the True King, Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Lord of the Supreme Throne!

Al Jumuah 62: 1
Whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth glorifies Allâh, the King (of everything), the Holy, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.

An Nas 114: 1-2
Say: “I seek refuge with (Allâh) the Lord of mankind, (1) “The King of mankind

Al Qamar 54: 55
In a seat of truth (i.e. Paradise), near the Omnipotent King (Allâh the one, the All-Blessed, the Most High, the Owner of Majesty and Honour).

2. Allah is the only King on the Day of Resurrection

AL fatihah 1: 4

The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection.

Al Infitar 82: 18-19

(It will be) the Day when no person shall have power (to do) anything for another, and the Decision, that Day, will be (wholly) with Allâh. (19)

Allah will change heaven and earth to something different. This is a reminder to YOU that the heavens and earth belong to Allah, the Owner of everything.

All that we hown now is temporary. either we lose them first or we die first. In the end, on the day of resurrection we will own nothing.
Al AnAm 6: 73
Al Mu’minoon 25:26

But Allah owns everything!!

We are owned by Allah. You are my children but I do not own you. This is what we must remember that one day we will all return to Him. I do not own you my children and neither do you own me. Remember this when Allah decreed teh time for either of us to return back to Allah.

Allah is the ONLY King on the Day of resurrection
Al Fatihah 1: 4
مَـٰلِكِ يَوۡمِ ٱلدِّينِ
The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)

On doomsday Allah asks Al Ghafir 40: 16

The Day when they will (all) come out, nothing of them will be hidden from Allâh.

لِّمَنِ ٱلۡمُلۡكُ ٱلۡيَوۡمَۖ
Whose is the kingdom this Day?
لِلَّهِ ٱلۡوَٲحِدِ ٱلۡقَهَّارِ
(Allâh Himself will reply to His Question): It is Allâh’s the One, the Irresistible!

Imagine this day

Az Zumar 39: 67

They made not a just estimate of Allâh such as is due to Him. And on the Day of Resurrection the whole of the earth will be grasped by His Hand and the heavens will be rolled up in His Right Hand. Glorified is He, and High is He above all that they associate as partners with Him!

Abdullah bin Umar narrated that the Messenger of Allah said, “On the Day of Resurection, Allah rolls up the heavens and grasps them by His Right Hand and then says: I am the King. Where are the compellers? Where are the arrogants, high and mighty people?”

(Muslim)

Think about it, Allah the King of the World, the King of Kings will also be the King in yaumul akhirah. The King who own everything. The King who has authority. The King who will judge. The king who knows everything thus you cannot lie!

Do what the King wants now. What does the King want us to do?
The King, Allah, wants us to worship Him alone!

Slaves of Allah glorify Him by His name “The King”

Al Mulk 67: 1
تَبَـٰرَكَ ٱلَّذِى بِيَدِهِ ٱلۡمُلۡكُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ۬ قَدِيرٌ
Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things.

In this verse Allah glorifies Himself in order to teach His slaves how to glorify him and o admit that he has the power over the slaves and creatures and He can do whatever he wishes with them.

Allah alone has the right to be worshipped because he is the King. Other than him is invalid because they do not rule or possess

Other gods are created and owned.Without Allah the gods have no power and own nothing.

Al Maidah 5: 76
Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): “How do you worship besides Allâh something which has no power either to harm or to benefit you? But it is Allâh Who is the All¬Hearer, All¬Knower.”

Allah dislike those who called themselves the King of the Kings.

When you realise that Allah is the King, you must humble yourself.

Allah detests names
king of kings
ruler of rulers
sultan of sultans

Allah own everything and controls everything. he can do whatever He wills but Allah is Most Merciful. He does not do something except from His Great Wisdom. When He afflicts tests on you is to only increase your status (if you are patient). If He withholds your du’a it is only because He is keeping something that is better for you.
