THE REVELATION OF Ayat AL KURSI
The Throne Verse is the 255th verse of Surah Al Baqara (The Cow). It is the second sura of the Quran which has many virtues. The sanctity and sacredness of the Throne Verse comes from the mysticism and spirituality of this Surah. Surah Al Baqara which is the longest surah in Holy Quran was revealed after the immigration of the Messenger of Godﷺ. It has the most considerable merits, in particular Ayat Al Kursi .
AYAT AL KURSI AND ITS MYSTERIES
Ayat Al Kursi has enormous virtues. The recitation of this sura wards off the devil . Abu Hurayra (may Allah be pleased with him) reports that the Prophet (Salla laho alayihi wa salam) said: “Do not turn your houses into graves. The demon never enters a house where surah Al Baqara is recited.” (Imams Muslim, Ahmed and Tirmidhi).
Thus the recitation of the verse of the Throne and Surah Al Baqara preserves from Satan (Sheitan) and makes our lives at home an atmosphere full of well-being, well-being and serenity. Its recitation preserves the house and hearth from the accursed and horrible demon.
“Everything has its peak and the peak of the Quran is Surah Al-Baqarah, which contains a verse which is the greatest in the Quran. the Prophet Muhammadﷺ is said to have said. Ayat Al Kursi honors the glory, greatness and power of God .
This is how Ubay ibn Ka'b (may Allah be pleased with him) said that the Messenger ﷺ asked: “What is the best verse that is in the Book of Allah?” He replied: “Allah and His Messenger are the most knowledgeable”. As he repeated this question without having any answer, he replied: “ It is the verse of the Throne ”. Then he added: “May the acquisition of science be easy for you, O Abu al Moundhir. By him who holds my soul in His hand, this verse has one tongue and two lips to celebrate the glory of Allah at the Throne."
Ayat Al Kursi has the most captivating mysteries. These mysteries calm, heal, protect, defend, haunt and possess. Reciting this verse regularly and diligently has many spiritual, emotional, physical and psychic virtues. This is the best Quranic verse according to Ubay ibn Ka'b. In an authentic hadith narrated by Muslim, the Prophetﷺ once said to him: “O Abu Mundhir! Do you know what is the most sublime verse of the Quran that you remember? I replied, “Allah and His Messenger know this better than anyone. He repeated his question several times. I answered finally: it is the verse of the Throne: “Allah! No divinity apart from him, the living, the self-subsisting…” (Qur'an 2/255), he patted me on the chest and said: “May your knowledge be beneficial to you, Ö Abû Mundhir! ".
An-Nasai reported in his book "Al-Sunan al-Sughra" that the Prophet ﷺ said: "Whoever recites Ayat Al Kursi at the end of each prescribed prayer, nothing prevents him from entering Paradise, if this is not death. ( Al-Albâni qualified this hadith as authentic).
Ayat Al Kursi is among the most soothing and rewarding verses . To recite it every morning when leaving home, after each prayer or when traveling, is to feel close to a divine power that gives strength, rigor, confidence and motivation.
On Earth, which is only a path to the beyond, Man is passing through. This is why he must understand how this presentation of faith prepares him for his future journey. The recitation of Ayat Al Kursi makes the rendezvous with death easier and more peaceful ; for it lessens the suffering of leaving our earthly home to our eternal home. May Allah the Almighty make our passage and the passage of all Muslim men and women safer, brighter and more serene.
The Verse of the Throne is a heavenly blessing that God the Clement has granted to Muslims and Muslims so that they feel protected against the evil of the world.
THE BENEFITS OF Ayat AL KURSI
The benefits of the Throne Verse come from the Most Beautiful Names and Sublime Attributes of Allah mentioned therein. He who recites it in a regular manner and with meditation on each recited word, at the end of each prescribed prayer, nothing prevents him from entering Paradise, except death.
- Anyone who recites Ayat Al Kursi while leaving home will be protected by 70,000 angels.
- Whoever recites Ayat Al Kursi 40 times every day at sunset, will have a reward of 40 hajj (Pilgrimage) .
- Whoever recites the Throne verse each night before bedtime, will be protected by an angel who will guard it throughout the night.
- Each word will elevate 40 times whoever recites Ayat Al Kursi after ablution (Wuḍūʾ الوضوء, al-wuḍūʼ)
- Whoever recites the verse from the Throne on entering his home, will not be touched by poverty .
To feel protected by God everywhere we go, throughout the day and throughout the night, to feel the presence of an angel ensuring that we are protected from all physical, emotional, spiritual harm (…), make the equivalent of 40 hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) each day, have each word spoken after ablution rewarded 40 times, feel protected against poverty and live with dignity; what better than to have these virtues and possess these blessings and graces.
THE MERITS OF Ayat AL KURSI
Imam Al Suyuti has collected forty hadiths on the merits of the Throne Verse. Here are a few :
1. Ayat AL KURSI PROTECTS ONE WHO RECITES IT FROM THE DJINNS
Ubay ibn Ka'b, companion of the Prophet Muhammadﷺ, reported that he had a container full of dates which he kept an eye on from time to time. Noting that the quantity of dates had diminished, he began one evening to watch the place. Suddenly, he saw a beast the size of a young teenager appear. Ubay ibn Ka'b then continues his account by saying: I saluted and this beast returned the salutation (Assalam). I said: Who are you? Are you a jinn or a human? She told me: a jinn. I replied: Show me your hand. She handed it to me, and I noticed that her hand had dog hair. I said: Is this how jinns are created? The beast replied: The jinns know that there is none among them more terrible than me. I said: What made you do what you did? The beast replied: I have been told that you are a man who likes to give alms. So we wanted to touch your food. I asked: What protects us from you? The beast replied: It is Ayat Al Kursi which is found in Surah Al Baqara (the Cow). The next morning, Ubay ibn Ka'b reported this fact to the Prophet Muhammadﷺ who told him this: “This jinn speaks the truth, the pervert, although he is a liar. » Listed by An-Nassa°î, Abû Y'alâ, Ibn Hibbân, Abu l-Shaykh, Tabarânî, Al-Hakîm, Abû Nu'aym and bayhaqî)
2. NOTHING COMES BETWEEN Ayat AL KURSI AND ALLAH
No veil is interposed between God and Ayat Al Kursi as well as the introductory sura (Al Fâtiha) and verses 18, 26, 27 of sura Al-Imrane (The Family of Imrane). They are thus suspended from the throne of Clement . Ali (Radhia Allahu 'anhu) said: "Surat al-Fatiha (The Opening), Ayat al Kursi and verses 18, 26 and 27 of surat al-'Imran (The Family of 'Imran) are suspended (on the Throne) and nothing comes between them and God. They say to God: Are you bringing us down to Earth, to the one who disobeys you? God said to them, “I swear by Myself! None of My servants repeats to you, at the end of each prayer, without Me making Paradise the place of his stay, without Me making him dwell in the Sacrosanct Abode, without Me looking at him seventy times each day with My inner Eye, without Me granting him every day the satisfaction of seventy needs, the least of which is forgiveness and without Me protecting him from his enemy and making him triumph over him. This Tradition is listed by Ibn al-Sunnî, Al-Shahami, Ibn al-Jawzi and Suyûtî.

God! No divinity apart from Him, the Living, the Self-subsisting ''(al-Qayyum)''. Neither drowsiness nor sleep seizes Him. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on the earth. Who can intercede with him without his permission? He knows their past and their future. And, of His science, they embrace only what He wills. His Throne ''(Kursi)'' overflows the heavens and the earth, the keeping of which costs him no trouble. And he is the Most High, the Most Great.
Meditating on these merits, secrets and benefits should encourage us to recite the verse of the Throne regularly in order to feel the presence of Allah, the Most High, the Immense.
May Allah the Almighty reward all Muslim men and women who have stuck to their faith until death. Amin 🤲🏼
