Surah Al Baqarah ayah 255
February 10, 2022
Narrated Abu Umamah (RA):
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said:
"Whoever recites Ayat al-Kursi at the end of every obligatory prayer,
nothing but death will prevent him from entering Paradise."
[An-Nasa'i reported it, and Ibn Hibban graded it Sahih (authentic).
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud:
"Allah has not created in the heavens nor in the earth what is more magnificent than Ayat Al-Kursi."
"Because Ayat Al-Kursi is the Speech of Allah, and Allah's Speech is greater than Allah's creation of the heavens and the earth."
Narrated Muhammad bin Sirin:
Abu Huraira said,
"Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) put me in charge of the Zakat of Ramadan (i.e. Zakat-ul-Fitr).
Someone came to me and started scooping some of the foodstuff of (Zakat) with both hands.
I caught him and told him that I would take him to Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)."
Then Abu Huraira told the whole narration and added
"He (i.e. the thief) said,
'Whenever you go to your bed, recite the Verse of "Al-Kursi" (2.255)
for then a guardian from Allah will be guarding you,
and Satan will not approach you till dawn.' "
On that the Prophet (ﷺ) said,
"He told you the truth, though he is a liar,
and he (the thief) himself was the Satan."
