    Ar-Rahman is often regarded as the 'beauty of the Quran', in accordance with a hadith: Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud reported that the Prophet Muhammad said, "Everything has an adornment, and the adornment of the Qur'an is Surah ar Rahman" [Bayhaqi in Shuab al Eiman]

    The main theme of the Surah is giving manifestation and fruits to the attribution of Allah's mercy and grace, which is evident right from the beginning, till the very end.

    Definite ar-raḥmānu like Allāh has a long ā that irregularly remains unexpressed in writing, الرحمن, but may be indicated by a diacritic alif. Indefinite raḥmānun on the other hand has an alif, رحمان. It is from the root R-Ḥ-M "to feel sympathy or pity" and as an epithet of God may be translated as "The Beneficent, The Compassionate". It co-occurs with ar-raḥīm in the Basmala: ar-raḥmān, according to Lane, is more intensive, including in its objects the believer and the unbeliever, while 'ar-raḥīm has for its peculiar object the believer

    Al-Waqiah is an Arabic name that means Inevitable, Event or Revolution. It is the 56th Surah of the Quran, it was revealed in Makkah. The total number of verses in this surah are 96.It starts with Izaa waqaatil Waqiah which means "when the inevitable cometh to pass".

    Like with many other surahs, Sura Al-Waqia also has benefits from recitation:

    Abdullah ibn Mas'ud reported that the Prophet said, "Whoever recites surah al Waqiah at night would never encounter poverty" [Ibn as-Sunni 620, Bayhaqi]According to Ustadz Quddus, reading Suratul Waqiah during dawn, your money will never be zero.

    The Prophet Muhammad also said:

    "Surah al Waqiah is the Surah of Wealth, so recite it and teach it to your children" [Ibn Asakir]

    Al-Mulk- The name of this sura refers to Malik al Mulk (Arabic: مالك الملك‎) 'The Owner of All Sovereignty', literally 'king of the realm', one of the 99 Names of Allah. The sura preaches the infinite power of Allah and states that those who reject warnings of Prophets will be companions of the Blazing Fire, meaning they will be punished in Hell.

    It has been told in Hadith that Prophet Muhammad has said that if every night Surat ul-Mulk is recited, then the reciter shall be protected from the tortures of the grave.
