Ayat Al-Kursi (The Throne Verse) : The Greatest Ayat In Al Qur’an

Ayat Al Kursi (The Throne Verse)
Ayat Al-Kursi, The Throne Verse (Arabic: آية الكرسي ‎ ʾāyatu-l-kursī), is 255th verse (ayah) of the second chapter Al-Baqara (The Cow). Ayat Al-Kursi is one of the most famous verses of the Qur'an and is widely memorized and displayed in the Islamic world due to its emphatic description of God's qualities and power.

Traditional belief holds that anyone who recites the verse enters the protection and security of God. Commonly, it is recited by Muslims before they go to sleep, before travelling on a long distance, or in a state of fear and worry.

Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) narrated; In Surah al-Baqaraah there is an ayah which is the best of all the ayahs of the Qur’an. It is never recited in a house but the Shaytan leaves: Ayat al-Kursi.

Abu Umamah Al-Bahili (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The one who recites it after each of the obligatory prayers, then death will be the only thing preventing him from entering Paradise." [Ibn Sunni, Ibn Hibban]

Abu Dhar said; O Messenger of Allah, what is the greatest thing that has been revealed to you?’ He said, Ayat al-Kursi, 'Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa' [an-Nasa'i]

Everything has its pinnacle and the pinnacle of the Qur’an is Surah al-Baqarah. In it there is an ayah which is the greatest in the Qur’an: Ayat al-Kursi [at-Tirmidhi]

Do you know the Ayatul Kursi?" Anas (radiAllahu anhu) replied "I know". The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, "It is equal to a quarter of the Qur'an"



اللَّهُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ
Allah! There is no god but He - the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal.


لاَ تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلاَ نَوْمٌ
No slumber can seize Him Nor Sleep.


لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ
His are all things In the heavens and on earth.


مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ
Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission?


يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ
He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter .


وَلاَ يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلاَّ بِمَا شَاءَ
And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills.

وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ
His Kursî extends over the heavens and the earth,

وَلاَ يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ
and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, The Supreme (in glory).
