In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Allah! There is no God but He,
the Living, the Self-subsisting, the Eternal.
No slumber can seize Him, nor sleep.
All things in heaven and earth are His.
Who could intercede in His presence without His permission?
He knows what appears in front of and behind His creatures.
Nor can they encompass any knowledge of Him except what he wills.
His throne extends over the heavens and the earth,
and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them,
for He is the Highest and Most Exalted.
(Al Baqara: 255)
Our Holy prophet (SAW) has said: whoever recites the first 4 ayats of Surah Baqarah, then Ayat ul-Kursi and then the last 3 ayats of Surah Baqarah will not be inflicted with any kind of difficulty in his wealth or himself, Shaitaan (demon, Jinn, Evil Sprit) will not come near him and he will not forget the Qur'an.
The Ayat of al-Kursi is recited every day after the Prayer by the Ummah globally, many also recite the passage of al-Kursi for numerous other purposes every day. It is well known but people rarely ponder over its meaning. It is one of the most sublime and majestic examples of the Qur’anic style. It is a compressed articulation of the Divine in a single verse. Whilst at the same time the doctrine has practical and spiritual repercussions for the believer.
download and listen to the whole recitation for about 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening. Listen with full attention for at least a minimum of two weeks. You should Inshallah notice a difference quickly.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful (1)
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, (2)
The Beneficent, the Merciful. (3)
Owner of the Day of Judgment, (4)
Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. (5)
Show us the straight path, (6)
The path of those whom Thou hast favoured. Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray. (7)
Surah Fatiha, the opening chapter of the Holy Quan is a wonderful store house of spiritual knowledge. It is a short chapter of seven brief verses, but it is a mine of knowledge and wisdom. Surah Fatiha was revealed at Mecca and was also revelaed in Medina the second time. The chapter has been referred to in the Quranic verse, “Valaqad aataynaaka sab’an minal masaani val quranil azeem” which means “We have indeed given thee the seven often repeated verses and the great Quran”.
It is very interesting to note that the New Testament contains the prophecy of this Surah. The New Testament says, “I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven….and he had in his hand a little book open and he set his right foot upon the sea and his left foot on the earth. And when the angel cried, seven thunders uttered thei voices” The seven thunders represent the seven verses of this chapter.
The best known name of this chapter is Fatihat al Kitab which means the opening of the book. It is also known as
