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.
Ayatul Kursi is verse 255 of Surah Al-Baqarah. It is mentioned in many hadiths as being the most excellent verse of the Qur’an due to its content being about the dhikr of Allah. The entire verse speaks of the Almighty Allah and His attributes and this is what makes it so powerful.
Just like we have Dunya and Akhirah, this world is made up of the seen, and the unseen.
The verse seeks to protect us from such evils. By 'seen' evils, this could mean through the actions of others. 'Unseen' evils could refer to energies whose nature we do not understand, and whose creation is not visible to us i.e. the whispers of Satan or of the Jinn.
At ZUDO we have been working behind the scenes for 8 months to perfect a design for you! Our intention behind this piece is for it to be an iconic staple in your daily lives, just like the recitation of the verse itself.
The benefits of reciting this verse are infinite, but here are a few we would like to highlight:
- One who recites Ayatul Kursi every morning will be in the protection of Allah until the night
- Whoever recites Ayatul Kursi immediately after each prescribed prayer (salah), there will be nothing standing between him and his entering paradise except death - Prophet (PBUH)
- Recitation of Ayatul Kursi on behalf of those who have passed away gives light (noor) in their graves
- The Holy Prophet has said: If one recites Ayatul Kursi before going to sleep, Allah will send an Angel to come and look after you and protect
At ZUDO, we want our collection to serve as a meaningful reminder, and always remain God-conscious.
