Ayal ul Kursi and its virtues!

Ayal ul Kursi and its virtues!

The Virtues of Ayat Al-Kursi:

This is Ayat Al-Kursi and tremendous virtues have been associated with it, for the authentic Hadith describes it as `the greatest Ayah in the Book of Allah.’

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,

«لِيَهْنِكَ الْعِلْمُ أَبَا الْمُنْذِرِ، وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ، إِنَّ لَهَا لِسَانًا وَشَفَتَيْنِ، تُقَدِّسُ الْمَلِكَ عِنْدَ سَاقِ الْعَرْش»

(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 she praises the King (Allah) next to the leg of the Throne.)

This Hadith was also collected by Muslim, but he did not include the part that starts with, “By He in Whose Hand…” (Tafsir Imam Ibn Katheer)

Abu Umaamah (RA) narrated that:
The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
“Whoever reads “Ayatul-Kursi” [Qur’an 2:255], after every obligatory prayer, nothing prevents him from entering Paradise except death (i.e. that he is still alive).”
(An-Nasaa’ee, Ibn Hibbaan – Sahih)

The explanation of this Hadith is that such a person is guaranteed Jannah, Innshaa Allaah.
However, this applies as long as that particular person does not commit any major sin without seeking repentance for it. In such a case this guarantee will not apply.

‘Ali (RA) said:
”I heard the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) saying while on his pulpit:
‘Whoever reads Aayatul Kursi, (Quran 2:255), after each obligatory prayer,
there is nothing which prevents him from entering Paradise except death,
and it is only a righteous and pious worshipper who would persist in reciting it regularly.”
Albaani classified it as authentic, and other scholars classified it as a sound narration

It is reported by at-Tabarani that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
“The one who recites Ayat-al kursi after the conclusion of an obligatory prayer, he is under the Care of Allah until the next prayer commences.”
[at-Tabaraani’s At Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (2:435)]

Sayyidina Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,
“Everything has a hump and the hump of the Quran is surah al-Baqarah. There is a verse in it that is the
chief of all verses of the Qur’an, the ayat ul-Kursi.”
(Tirmidhi 2887)

Abu Hurairah reports:
“Whenever you go to bed, recite “Ayat-al-Kursi”– ‘Allaahu laa ilaaha illaa huwal-Hayyul Qayyuum’ till you finish the whole verse. (If you do so), Allah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you and no satan will come near you till morning. “
