This study focuses on analyzing deixis in surah Al-Mulk using the theory of deixis proposed by Stephen C. Levinson. Deixis is a part of discourse analysis which is concerning to the context of utterance referring to who is speaking, the time or place of speaking, the gestures of the the speaker or the current location in the discourse. Surah Al-Mulk is the 67th surah of Holy Qur’an that has 30 verses. All verses of the letter al-Mulk are said to belong to the group of Makkiyah verses (surah which was released in Mecca). Therefore, it contains many deixis. Based on this, the research on the deixis in the translation of surah Al-Muk is necessary to be conducted. There is one problem in this study, what types of deixis are used in the holy quran surah Al-Mulk? This research is aimed to describe the deixis using Levinson theory. The data are the utterances of surah Al-Mulk in the forms of written text, which are then analysed using descriptive qualitative method. The results of the research show the types of deixis that are found in surah Al-Mulk. They are person deixis, place deixis, time deixis, social deixis and discourse deixis. Based on those findings, the researcher suggests the next researcher to make more wonderful and more complete analysis on the same field, because every literary work especially Al-Quran as the source of Moslem has its own uniqueness and contains many deixis.
