Ayatul Kursi - Surah Al Baqarah 2:255


Whoever reads Ayatul Kursi when he lies down to sleep will have a guardian from Allah remain with him and Satan will not be able to come near him until he rises in the morning.

اللَّهُ لَآ إِلٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَىُّ الْقَيُّومُ ۚ

Allah! There is none worthy of worship but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists.

Allaahu laa 'ilaaha 'illaa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyoom,

لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ ۚ

Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him.

laa ta'khuthuhu sinatun wa laa nawm,

لَّهُ مَا فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَمَا فِى الْأَرْضِ ۗ

To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth.

lahu maa fis-samaawaati wa maafil-'ardh,

مَنْ ذَا الَّذِى يَشْفَعُ عِندَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِۦ ۚ

Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission?

man thal-lathee yashfa'u 'indahu 'illaa bi'ithnih,

يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ ۖ

He knows what happens to them in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter.

ya'lamu maa bayna 'aydeehim wa maa khalfahum,

وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَىْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِۦٓ إِلَّا بِمَا شَآءَ ۚ

And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills.

wa laa yuheetoona bishay'im-min 'ilmihi 'illaa bimaa shaa'a,

وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضَ ۖ

His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth,

wasi'a kursiyyuhus-samaawaati wal'ardh,

وَلاَ يَؤُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا ۚ

and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them.

wa laa ya'ooduhu hifdhuhumaa,

وَهُوَ الْعَلِىُّ الْعَظِيمُ

And He is the Most High, the Most Great.

wa Huwal-'Aliyyul- 'Adheem.
