Ayat al Kursi- Quran 2-255
Recitation of Ayatul Kursi Results in the Focus of Allah (swt) upon His Servants
When Allah, the Noble and Grand, commanded the verse (mentioned at the end of this tradition) to descend down to the Earth, they (the verses) attached themselves to the Throne (of Allah) and said,
‘O Lord! Where are you sending us to? Are you sending us to a place of [the People of] transgressions and sins?’
Allah, the Noble and Grand, revealed to them (the verses),
‘Go down as I swear by My Greatness and My Majesty that not a single person from amongst the progeny of Muhammad and their followers shall recite you after that which I have made obligatory upon them (the five canonical prayers) every day except that I will glance at them with a special glance with My eyes seventy times every day and with every glance, I will fulfill seventy of their desires and I will accept (their supplications) even though they have sins (on their record) and these verses will make up the basis of The Book (Ummul Kitab – meaning Suratul Hamd) and the verse, ‘Allah bears witness that there is no other entity worthy of worship except for Him and so do the angels (bear witness to this) and so do those who possess knowledge’ [3:18] and Ayatul Kursi and the verse of dominion, ‘Say: To Allah belongs the Kingdom…’ [3:26].
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
2:255 Allah—there is no god except Him—is the Living One, the All-sustainer. Neither drowsiness befalls Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that may intercede with Him except with His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, and they do not comprehend anything of His knowledge except what He wishes. His seat embraces the heavens and the earth and He is not wearied by their preservation, and He is the All-exalted, the All-supreme.
2.256: There is no compulsion in religion: rectitude has become distinct from error. So one who disavows fake deities and has faith in Allah has held fast to the firmest handle for which there is no breaking; and Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing.
2.257: Allah is the wali of the faithful: He brings them out of darkness into light. As for the faithless, their awliya are the fake deities, who drive them out of light into darkness. They shall be the inmates of the Fire, and they will remain in it [forever].
