The Holy Quran,
Surah Al Mulk, Chapter No. 67
THE VIRTUES AND BENEFITS OF SURAH AL MULK
The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam) said, 'There is a surah in the Qur'an which is only thirty verses. It defended whoever recited it until it puts him into paradise' i.e. Surah al Mulk
[Fath al Qadir 5/257, Sahihul Jamiea 1/680, Tabrani in Al-Awsat & Ibn Mardawaith]
Abu Huraira (radiAllahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam) said, "The Qur'an contains a surah of thirty ayats which will intercede for a man until he is forgiven. It is: 'Blessed be He who has the Kingdom in His Hand!' (67)"
[abu Dawud, Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, Riyad as-Salihin by Imam an-Nawawi Ch.183 #1016]
The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam) said, 'Surah al Mulk is the protector from the torment of the grave'
[Sahihul Jamiea 1/680, Hakim 2/498 & Nasai]
Jabir (radiAllahu anhu) said it was the custom of the Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam) not to go to sleep until he had read Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk and Alif Laam Meem Tanzeel.
[Ahmad, Tirmidhi and Darami]
Anas (radiAllahu anhu) reported Rasulullah (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam) as saying, "There is a Surah which will plead for its reciter till it causes him to enter paradise (Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk)."
Abdullah Ibn 'Abbas (radiAllahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam) said, 'It is my desire/love that Surahtul Mulk should be in the heart of every Muslim'
[Hakim, al-Hisnul Haseen by the cassical scholar Muhammad al-Jazri]
Ibn Abbas (radiAllahu anhu) said that one of the Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam)'s companions set up his tent over a grave without realising that it was a grave and it contained a man who was reciting the Surah Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk up to the end. He went and told the Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam) who said, 'It is The Defender; it is The Protector which safeguards from Allah Ta'alas punishment'
Khalid bin Madam (tabie) said about surat Al Mulk and 'As Sajda that these two surahs will fight for their reciter in the grave and will say, 'O Allah! If we belong to your book, accept our intercession in his favour. In case we do not, get us obliterated. These surahs will spread their wings like birds and will save the person from the torment of the grave.'
It was narrated that Abdullah ibn Masud said: Whoever reads Tabarakallahi Biyadihil 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 (SalAllahu alayhi waalihi wasalam) we used to call it al-maniah (that which protects). In the Book of Allah it is a surah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well.
