Ayatul Kursi

Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 255

Recite this:

  • Once every Morning & Evening
  • After every obligatory Salaah
  • Before you go to bed at night
  • In your houses


  • You will be under Allah’s Protection till the next Salaah
  • Allah will send an angel to protect you till the night is over
  • No shaytan or harmful thing will come close to your house

Proof/Hadith for the above:

1.  “Whoever recites Ayatul Kursi at the end of every obligatory salaah, he will be under the protection of Allah till the next salaah.” [Classified as Hassan by Ibn al-Qayyim, as saheeh by Ibn Baz & as weak by al-Albani]

2.   “Whoever recites Ayatul Kursi after each Prescribed Salaah, nothing will be standing between him and Paradise except death.”      [Nasai’/Tabarani/classified as sahih by al-Albani]

3. Story of Ubbay bin Ka’b and the jinn: Ubbay bin Ka’b(ra) stated that he used to have a room of dates. He suspected that some dates were going missing.  Thus one night he stood vigil and saw an animal like a young person. Ubbay(ra) said: “I greeted and received a reply”.  I asked, “Who are you? A man or  Jinn?” He said, “Jinn. I said, give me you hand”. He outstretched his hands. I noticed that the hand was like that of a dog. Its hair like the hair of the dog. I asked, “Are Jinns created like this?” He said, “The Jinns know that there is none among them who is stronger than me”.   I inquired, “Why did you steal?” He replied, “I have come to know that you love to give charity so decided to take some of your food.

“Ubbay(ra) said: “What will save us from you? He said, ‘Ayatul Kursi which is in Surah al-Baqarah. He who reads it at night will be saved from our evil till the morning and he who reads it in the morning will be saved from our evil till the night’.”

Ubbay(ra) said: I went to the Messenger of Allah (sws) in the morning and told him about my story. He(sws) said: “The evil one has said the truth."[Nasai’/Ibn Hibban Tabarni/Al-Hakim] Lesson: Rasul(sws)’s approval of this made the reading of Ayatul Qursi every morning and evening a Sunnah.

4. The same story happened to Abu Huraira(ra)except that the shaytan appeared to him in the shape of a man. [Bukhari] Lesson: Read Ayatul Kursi before you go to bed, Allah will send an angel to protect you till the night is over.

5. The same story happened to Abu Ayoub  al-Ansari(ra) with a female jinni (ghoul).  [Ahmed/Tirmithi/classified as sahih by  al-Albani] Lesson: Recite Ayatul-Kursi in your house and no shaytan will come close to it or anything harmful thing.

Then he (sws) said again, ‘Say’, so I said, ‘What should I say?’ He said: ‘Say, He is Allah, who is One’ and the two surahs of refuge (al-Falaq and an-Nas) when you enter upon the evening and the morning three times (each). They will suffice you against everything.” [Abu Dawood/Tirmithi/Nasai’/Classified as Hassan by al-Albaani]

He(sws) said: “Say, I seek refuge in the Lord of the daybreak.” and ‘Say, I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind.’ It is included in these two surahs.” [Abu Dawood/classifed by al-Albani]

4. Aisha(ra) reported that whenever the Prophet(sws) went to bed every night, he used to cup his hands together and blow over them after reciting surah Al-Ikhlas, Surah Al-Falaq and Surah An-Nas and then rub his hands over whatever parts of his body he was able to rub, starting with his head, face and front of his body. He used to do that three times. [Bukhari]

  1. Asalamualaikum

    Where can I get "at tahleel" in English version? I can't understand Arabic.

    Thank you

    • Dear Sister,

      The meaning of the Tahleel is written just underneath the Arabic, it is:

      "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner. His is the dominion and His is the praise and He is Able to do all things."

      The transliteration is:
      'Laa illaaha illallaahu Wahdahu Laa shareeka lahu, La hul mulku wa la hul hamdu, Wahuwa A'laa kulle shayin qadeer'.

      Hope this helps insha'Allah.

  2. Sinful relationships between members of both sexes begin with
    what is called admiration or infatuation. This infatuation leads to love, in which the girl cannot bear not to see the one whom she loves; if she is not able to do that, then she will listen
    to her voice or look at a picture of her. The scholars of the Standing Committee were asked: What is the ruling on lesbianism and masturbation? They replied: Lesbianism among women is haraam, and is a major sin, because it is an action that is contrary to the words of Allaah (interpretation of the meaning): “And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts) If a Muslim feels that he is attracted to someone and fears that this may be one of the tricks of the shaytaan, then he should hasten to rid himself of it, and to treat himself, before it develops further and becomes haraam love . Sister if you want to rid yourself of that, you should do several things, including the followings i will mention: First, you should continually read about the lives of righteous people, scholars and mujaahideen, so that you can learn from those who offered their time and their lives in the service of Islam and the Muslims whilst you are preoccupied with looking at your own sister or enjoying listening to your heart. These are things that are it is not befitting for a Muslim to do even once, so how about if this is your whole life?! Secondly, you should focus your heart on your Lord, for He is the Bestower of blessings and bounty Who has granted you immense blessings, so you should direct the love of your heart towards your Creator. Thirdly, always engage yourself with something useful. Fourthly, you should also ponder upon the grave and serious effects of these two destructive diseases, namely haraam infatuation toward same sex. And always engage yourself with the dhikr of Allah, for with the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest. May Allah forgive your short-comings. Amin!
