This is a unique course that focuses on preparing for the grave.  The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

"Indeed there is a Surah in the Qur'an of thirty verses, which intercedes for a man until he is forgiven. It is [Surah] Tabarak Alladhi Biyadihil-Mulk." (Tirmidhi)

For this reason, it is utmost importance for every Muslim to read this chapter with meaning every night to be saved from the torment of the grave.
