Al-Malik (The King) Al-Maalik (the Master and Owner)

“The High exalted be Allah, al-Malik, the Truth. Do not be in haste with the Qur’an before its revelation is completed to you and say, ‘My Lord! Increase me in knowledge.'” (Surah Ta Ha [20]:114)

“Say: O Allah! Maalik of the kingdom, You give sovereignty to whom You will and take sovereignty from whom You will. You exalt whom You will and humiliate whom You will. In your Hand is [all] good, indeed You have power over all things.” (Surah Ali Imran [3]: 26)

All praises be to Allah who is known by the Beautiful Names al-Malik, the King and al-Maalik, the Master and Owner. He is the One who possess majesty and omnipotence and who regulates all of the affairs. To Him belongs the whole of creation, and all of it is subservient to Him, and in continuous need of Him. He is the sovereign of everything that exists. When we realise this, this makes us naturally turn to Him in submission. He is our King, our Master and Owner and we are His servants.

“So Exalted is Allah, the True King: None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Lord of the Supreme Throne!” ( Surah al-Mu’minun [23]:116)
