Al-Malik [THE ETERNAL lORD]


Root Word.

Malik comes from the root maa-laa-kaa, pointing to three main meanings.

  • To have possession and ownership.

  • To have power and ability.

  • To control and have authority.


Al-Malik Meaning.

Linguistically Malik refers to the attribute of mulk, pointing to the power and ability on the whole, and not just one aspect.

Mulk also means possession and ownership, as well as control and authority.

To Him belongs the Ownership of the heavens and earth [Quran 2:107]


Al-Malik is simultaneously the Ultimate King, Ruler, and Owner of all beings.

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet ﷺ said, "On the Day of Resurrection Allah will hold the whole earth and fold the heaven with His right hand and say, 'I am the King: where are the kings of the earth?" [Sahih al-Bukhari 7382]


Reflection.

This beautiful name of Allah, Al-Malik speaks to me of submission, patience, and tawakul on the greatest and one lord, Allahﷻ. For there is nothing He cannot take care of. There is nothing that goes unattended from As-Samee(all hearing), and Al-Baseer(all seeing). No harm, no good, no pain, no suffering, no injustice, nothing there is that He does not know. He knows and knows in perfection.


Patience in hardships.

This attribute brings peace for every hardship that we face, knowing Allah does not let anything go until it’s been judged. What we need to do is to have patience for the time. In one year, 10 years, or maybe even on the day of judgment, Al-Malik’s kingdom is just.


Submission to one Lord.

Submitting ourselves to the one king, Allah, what He wants, and not be a slave of this world. We are His servants, He is our lord, subhanAllah. We must accept His divine decree and keep faith in Him alone.


Say, "O Allāh, Owner of Sovereignty, You give sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will. You honor whom You will and You humble whom You will. In Your hand is [all] good. Indeed, You are over all things competent. [Quran, 3:26]


Asking and seeking help only from ALLAH.

Who else can we go to help for, who else is there who can ease us, who else is there who has control over everything? None, but Allah. We should always rely on Allah, Al-Malik alone for all our needs with a faith that no one other than Him can come to our help.


إنَّا للـهِ وإنَّا إلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ، اللَّهُمَّ أجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيْبَتي، وأخْلِفْ لِي خَيْراً مِنْهَا

We belong to Allah, and to him, we do return. O Allah, I seek reward with you for my affliction. so reward me for it, and replace it for me with something better
