What is the meaning of Ayat al Kursi?
This Ayah means that Allah is the only God, no one other than him, he is living all the time, no slumber can seize
him, nor sleep, he has all in heaven and on the Earth.
No one can intercede in the presence of Allah without his permission.
Allah knows what is behind and what is in front of us, and his Throne extends from Heaven to the Earth.
Allah doesn’t feel fatigue due to guarding and preserving
his throne, and nothing can harm him.
Allah is the most high and he speaks the truth only.

Ayatul Kursi benefits:
As we said before, this is the verse 255 of Surah al
One day a man came to our beloved Prophet Muhammad
(SAW) and asked him “what is the most excellent verse of the Quran?”
He answered the man “ayatul Kursi”.
This shows the importance and the greatness of this
Ayatul Kursi is the Aya’s leader of the Holy Quran.
One of the benefits of reciting the verse of the Throne will be clear when we know that our beloved Prophet
Muhammad (SAW) said:
“ Whoever recites the first 4 verses of Surah-e-Baqarah,
then Ayatul Kursi and then the last 3 verses of
Surah-al-Baqarah will not be harmed with any kind of
difficulty in his wealth or himself, Shaitan will not come
near him and also he will not forget the Quran.”.
Other benefits are:
● One who recites Ayatul Kursi in the morning will be
protected from harm till the night.
● When one recites this great verse once if he want to
go out, Allah will send with him one group of angels to
protect him, when he recites it twice Allah will send
him 2 groups of angels to protect him, and when he
recites it more than twice Allah ask his angels no to
worry as he himself will take care of him.
● Frequent recitation of ayatul Kursi makes death more and more easy.
● Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) also said in Hadith:
“If one recites Ayatul Kursi before going to sleep, Allah will
send an Angel to come and look after you and protect.”
These are some but not all the benefits of the verse of the Throne.
We have to give this verse its position and recite it
whenever it is possible.
