Mâlik al-Mulk audio caligraphy

The Master of the Kingdom,  The Owner of All Sovereignty,  The Lord of Absolute Ruling Power

The One who is sole owner, possessor and ruler of all kingdoms. The One whose ruling power and authority have no limit.

The One who possesses all authority to act in any manner, at any time, in any way. The One who is lord and master over all worlds, whether manifest or un-manifest.

The One who has all mastery and authority to decide what shall be created, what shall be sustained and what shall be cease to be.

From the root m-l-k which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to possess, to own exclusively
to exercise authority to command
to have power over, command, reign
to have dominion over, to have ruling power
to have kingship

The name Mâlik ul Mulk appears in the Qur'ân 3:26.

The name Malik signifies king, while the name the name Mâlik, by virtue of the â which intensifies the meaning, signifies something that is in some way greater than a king, and is often translated as master or lord. However, the exact differences between these names are not universally agreed upon.

By some traditions, al-Malik is considered to be the owner and king of this world, or of the beings of this world, while Mâlik al-Mulk is considered to be the supreme lord and master of all worlds, the known and the unknown, the manifest and the un-manifest... and those explanations have been used in selecting the definitions given on this page.

(Also written as malik al-mulk, maalik al-mulk, malik ul-mulk, maalik ul-mulk, the Master of the Kingdom: ya malik al-mulk, ya maalik al-mulk, ya malik ul-mulk, maalik ul-mulk)
