Round Ayatul Kursi
Ayatul Kursi is 255th verse (ayah) of the second chapter (sura) Al-Baqara. It is the most famous verse of the Qur’an and is widely memorized and displayed in the Islamic world due to its emphatic description of God’s power over the entire universe.
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah ‘s Apostle ordered me to guard the Zakat revenue of Ramadan. Then somebody came to me and started stealing of the foodstuff. I caught him and said, “I will take you to Allah’s Apostle!” Then Abu Huraira described the whole narration and said That person said (to me), “(Please don’t take me to Allah’s Apostle and I will tell you a few words by which Allah will benefit you.) When you go to your bed, recite Ayatul Kursi, (2.255) for then there will be a guard from Allah who will protect you all night long, and Satan will not be able to come near you till dawn.” (When the Prophet heard the story) he said (to me), “He (who came to you at night) told you the truth although he is a liar; and it was Satan.” [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 61, Hadith #530]
Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “If anyone recites in the morning (Al-Quran 40:1-3) and ayatul kursi (2:255) then he is protected thereby until evening. And, if anyone recites these verses in the evening then he is protected thereby till it is morning.” (Tirmidhi 2888)
