As we know, reading the Holy Quran is a great way to keep bad things away, the guidence of true path and learn about anything you need to know, to living a blessed life. However, there is an ayat in particular that even the prophet Muhammed PBUH spoke of, that is said to give it’s reader great benefits in this life and the after life upon reading it. The ayat is … Ayat Al Kursi. (Surat Al Baqarah : 255)
Allahu la ilaha illa huwa Al -Haiyul-Qayyum
La ta’khudhuhu sinatun wa la nawm
lahu maa fi as-samawati wa ma fil-‘ard
Man dhal-ladhi yashfa’u ‘indahu illa bi-idhnihi
Ya’lamu ma bayna aydihim wa ma khalfahum
wa la yuhituna bi shai’in min ‘ilmihi illa bima sha’a
Wasi’a kursiyuhus-samawati wal ard
wa laa ya’uduhu hifdhuhuma wa Hu wal ‘Aliyul-Adheem
Allah! There is no god but He – the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal.
No slumber can seize Him Nor Sleep.
His are all things In the heavens and on earth.
Who is there can intercede In His presence except As he permitteth?
He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures As) Before or After or Behind them.
Nor shall they compass Aught of his knowledge Except as He willeth.
His throne doth extend Over the heavens And on earth, and He feeleth No fatigue in guarding And preserving them, For He is the Most High. The Supreme (in glory).
This ayat was revealed after Hijrah. During its revealation it was accompanied by thousands of angels because of its greatness and glory.
Syayatiin (devils) and iblis became worried because there is an obstacle in their quest to mislead mankind. Rasulullah Shalallahu ‘alaihi wasallam immediately ordered Zaid bin Tsabit to write it down and spread the message.
Whoever recites ayat Kursi with full concentration daily after fardhu prayers, every morning and evening, before sleep, before exiting or entering the house or before on a journey, InshaAllah will be protected from the temptation of syaitan, evil people, wild and dangerous animals. Even our family, children and property will be save from harm by Allah Subhanahu waTa’ala.
