Ayat Al-Kursi

Posted on: Sunday, June 21, 2009

Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His permission He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great (Surah Al-Baqara # 255)

This is Ayat Al-Kursi and tremendous virtues have been associated with it, for the authentic Hadith describes it as `the greatest Ayah in the Book of Allah.’ Imam Ahmad recorded that the Prophet commented on this Ayat,‘By He in Whose Hand is my soul! This Ayah has a tongue and two lips with which she praises the King (Allah) next to the leg of the Throne.’

Further, Ibn Marduwyah recorded that Abu Umamah reported that the Prophet said, ‘Allah’s Greatest Name, if He was supplicated with it, He answers the supplication, is in three Surahs – Al-Baqarah, Al `Imran and Ta-Ha’. Hisham bin `Ammar, the Khatib (orator) of Damascus (one of the narrators in the above narration), said, “As for Al-Baqarah, it is in, ‘Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists‘ (# 255); in Al `Imran, it is in, ‘Alif-Lam-Mim. Allah! None has the right to be worshipped but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists‘ (# 1-2),  while in Ta-Ha, it is in, ‘And (all) faces shall be humbled before (Allah), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists‘ ( # 111)

It is recorded in the Sahih that Abu Musa said, “The Messenger of Allah delivered a speech regarding four words (Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him): ‘Allah does not sleep, and it does not befit His majesty that He sleeps. He lowers the scales and raises them. The deeds of the day are resurrected in front of Him before the deeds of the night, and the deeds of the night before the deeds of the day. His Veil is light, or fire, and if He removes it, the rays from His Face would burn whatever His sight reaches of His creation.’

Waki` narrated in his Tafsir that Ibn `Abbas said, “Kursi is the footstool, and no one is able to give due consideration to [Allah’s] Throne.” In addition, Ad-Dahhak said that Ibn `Abbas said, “If the seven heavens and the seven earths were flattened and laid side by side, they would add up to the size of a ring in a desert, compared to the Kursi’

I love ayat Al-Kursi! Thanks for sharing the meaning 🙂

This last narration beautifully depicts the power of this beautiful verse. I always find relaxation of heart and mind after reciting this ayah. May Allah help us to explore depths of it 🙂

I love Ayat-ul-Kursi and co-incidently, I was thinking the other day of looking up the translation of these ayahs as I was forgetting their meaning. Now I don’t need to 🙂

Beautiful post! loved reading it!

Liya .. You are welcome 🙂

Asma .. I had the same feeling as you did having read the last Ayat. Thats how powerful it really is. The measure of Allah throne stated in simple yet at such a lavishing extent simply blows off a humans mind.
Surely, Allah is able to do anything He wishes!!
