Al-Baqara 255 From Wikipedia

The Throne Verse (Arabic: آية الكرسيʾāyatu-l-kursī), or Ayatul Kursi, is 255th verse (ayah) of the second chapter (sura) Al-Baqara. It is the most famous verse of the Qur’an and is widely memorized and displayed in the Islamic world due to its emphatic description of God’s power over the entire universe.


While not all verses in the Quran carry a specific name, this one was given the name ‘Ayat Al-Kursi’ (Kursi: literally a footstool or chair, and sometimes translated as the Throne.) The Kursi mentioned in this Verse should be distinguished from the ‘Arsh (Throne) mentioned in V 7:52, 10:3, 85:15 and elsewhere. Muhammad said: “The Kursi compared to the ‘Arsh is nothing but like a ring thrown out upon open space of the desert.” If the Kursi extends over the entire universe, then how much greater is the ‘Arsh. It is narrated from Muhammad bin ‘Abdullah and from other religious scholars that the Kursi is in front of the ‘Arsh (Throne) and it is the at the level of the Feet.” Another opinion preferred by Tabari, Sufyan al-Thawri in their exegesis, in the Mufradat by Raghib and narrated by Bukhari as the opinion of Saeed ibn Jubayr, interprets Kursi as “Allah’s Knowledge (Ilm)”. Islamic religious 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.

Difference of opinion over Ayat in Ayatul Kursi

There is a slight difference of opinion in the number of Ayat included in Ayatul Kursi. Sunni scholars believe that under normal circumstances, it is only Ayah 255; Ayat 256 and 257 are to be recited only if the Hadith says so. Shia scholars believe that under normal circumstances, Ayat 256 and 257 are optional.[citation needed]

Authentic, or Sahih

  • Imam Ahmad recorded that Ubayy bin Ka`b said that;

The Prophet asked him about the greatest Ayah in the Book of Allah, and Ubayy answered, “Allah and His Messenger know better. When the Prophet repeated his question several times, Ubayy said, “Ayat Al-Kursi. The Prophet commented, Congratulations for having knowledge, O Abu Al-Mundhir! By He in Whose Hand is my soul! This Ayah has a tongue and two lips with which it praises Allah next to the Throne. [Imam Ahmad , Muslim][1] This Hadith was also collected by Muslim, but he did not include the part that starts with, “By He in Whose Hand…

  • Muhammad said :

“Whoever recites Aaayat ul-Kursi immediately after each prescribed Prayer, there will be nothing standing between him and his entering Paradise except death.” [Narrated by an-Nasaaee. Imaam Al-Albaanee authenticated it in Saheeh al Jam i as-Sagheer : 6464][2]

  • Abu Hurayrah said,

“Allah’s Messenger assigned me to keep watch over the Sadaqah (charity) of Ramadan. A person sneaked in and started taking handfuls of foodstuff. I caught him and said, `By Allah, I will take you to Allah’s Messenger.’ He said, `Release me, for I am meek and have many dependents and am in great need.’ I released him, and in the morning Allah’s Messenger asked me, `What did your prisoner do yesterday, O Abu Hurayrah!’ I said, `O Allah’s Messenger! He complained of being needy and of having many dependents, so I pitied him and let him go.’ Allah’s Messenger said, `Indeed, he told you a lie and will be coming again.’ I believed that he would show up again, for Allah’s Messenger had told me that he would return. So, I watched for him. When he (showed up and) started stealing handfuls of foodstuff, I caught hold of him again and said, `I will definitely take you to Allah’s Messenger.’ He said, `Leave me, for I am very needy and have many dependents. I promise I will not come back again.’ I pitied him and let him go. In the morning Allah’s Messenger asked me, `What did your prisoner do last night, O Abu Hurayrah!’ I replied, `O Allah’s Messenger! He complained of his great need and of too many dependents, so I took pity on him and set him free.’ Allah’s Messenger said, `Verily, he told you a lie; he will return.’ I waited for him attentively for the third time, and when he (came and) started stealing handfuls of the foodstuff, I caught hold of him and said, `I will surely take you to Allah’s Messenger as it is the third time you promised not to return, yet you returned.’ He said, `Let me teach you some words which Allah will give you benefit from.’ I asked, `What are they?’ He replied, `Whenever you go to bed, recite Ayat Al-Kursi- Allahu la ilaha illa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyum, till you finish the whole verse. (If you do so), Allah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you, and no Shaytan will come near you until morning.’ So, I released him. In the morning, Allah’s Messenger asked, `What did your prisoner do yesterday?’ I replied, `O Allah’s Messenger! He claimed that he would teach me some words by which Allah will grant me some benefit, so I let him go.’ Allah’s Messenger asked, `What are they?’ I replied, `He said to me: Whenever you go to bed, recite Ayat Al-Kursi from the beginning to the end, Allahu la ilaha illa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyum. He further said to me: (If you do so), Allah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you, and no Shaytan will come near you until morning.’ (One of the narrators) then commented that they (the Companions) were very keen to do good deeds. The Prophet said, `He spoke the truth, although he is a liar. Do you know whom you were talking to, these three nights, O Abu Hurayrah!’ Abu Hurayrah said, `No.’ He said, `It was Shaytan. [AL-Bukhari ; An-Nasa’i also recorded this Hadith in Al-Yawm wa Al-Laylah. ]

Original Arabic

002255 Al-Baqrah UrduScript

002255 Al-Baqarah UsmaniScript

اللّهُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لاَ تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلاَ نَوْمٌ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلاَ يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلاَّ بِمَا شَاء وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ وَلاَ يَؤُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيم

Transliteration of Arabic

Here is a normal phonological transcription: al-lāhu lā ilāha illā huwa l-ḥayyu l-qayyūmu lā taʾḫuḏuhu sinätu-n wa lā nawmu-n lahu mā fī s-samawāti wa mā fī l-arḍi man ḏā llaḏī yašfaʿu ʿindahu illā bi iḏnihi yaʿlamu mā bayna aydīhim wa mā ḫalfahum walā yuḥīṭūna bi šayʾi-n min ʿilmihi illā bi mā šāʾa wasiʿa kursiyuhu s-samawāti wa l-arḍa walā yaʾuduhu ḥifẓuhumā wa huwa l-ʿaliyyu l-ʿaẓīm.

Phonetic assimilation (tajweed) is left unmarked, since it is completely regular and predictable. In this respect, the Arabic of the Qur’an is no different than any other language. Qur’anic tajweed has nasal sounds and conditioned lengthening that do not exist in modern Arabic phonetics.
