Hi! This is Esoofi Qader from Vasai India. A Software & Web Designer by profession. As this is my first blog so let me start from the Holy Quran as this is Holy month of Ramadan.
Ayatul Kursi (The verse of Throne )
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem
Allahu laaa ilaaha illaa huwal haiyul qai-yoom; laa taakhuzuhoo sinatunw wa laa nawm; lahoo maa fissamaawaati wa maa fil ard; man zallazee yashfa’u indahooo illaa be iznih; ya’lamu maa baina aideehim wa maa khalfahum; wa laa yuheetoona beshai ‘immin ‘ilmihee illa be maa shaaaa; wasi’a kursiyyuhus samaa waati wal arda wa la ya’ooduho hifzuhumaa; wa huwal aliyyul ‘azeem.
“Allah! There is no god but He – the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him Nor Sleep. His are all things In the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede In His presence except As he permitteth? He knoweth What (appeareth to His creatures As) Before or After or Behind them. Nor shall they compass Aught of his knowledge Except as He willeth. His throne doth extend Over the heavens And on earth, and He feeleth No fatigue in guarding And preserving them, For He is the Most High. The Supreme (in glory).”
Benefits of Ayatul Kursi : Maula Ali (as) states that there was a room of dates, which he used to guard. He suspected that some dates were going missing. Thus one night he stood vigil and saw an animal like a young person. Maula Ali (as) said: “I greeted and received a reply”. I asked,” Who are you? Man or Jinn?” It said, “Jinn. I said, Give me your hand”. He outstretched his hand. 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?” It said, ” the Jinns know there are amongst them more stronger ones”. I enquired,” Why did you steal?”. He replied,” I have come to know that you love to give charity so I decided to take a part also.” Maula Ali (as) said: ” Who will save us from your evil? It said, Aayatul Kursi which is in Surah 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.”
In the morning Maula Ali (as) came to Holy Prophet (Saw) and narrated the entire event to him. Nabi (Saw) said,”That rascal has stated the truth although he is a great liar.”
It is a quarter of the Qur’aan Kareem: Hadhrat Anas (RA) narrates that Rasulallaah (Saw) asked one of his companions: ” Oh, so and so are you married?” He replied: “No, I do not have enough wealth that I may marry.”, Nabi (Saw) said: “Do you know Surah Qul Huwallaahu Ahad?” The Sahaba replied: “I know”. Nabi (Saw) said: “It is equal to a quarter of the Qur’aan. Nabi (Saw) asked: “Do you not know Qul Yaa Ayyuhal Kaafiroon?” The Sababi replied “I know”. Nabi (Saw) said ” “It is equal to a quarter of the Qur’aan.” Nabi (Saw) asked, “Do you not know Surah “Iza Zul Zilzilaat ” ?” The Sahaabi replied, “I Know”. Nabi (Saw) said: “It is a quarter of the Qur’aan”. Nabi (Saw) asked: “Do you not know Surah Iza Jaa a Nasrullaahi Wal Fath” The Sahabi replied “I Know” Nabi (Saw) said, it is a quarter of the Qur’aan. Nabi (Saw) asked: “Do you know the Ayatul Kursi?” The Sahabi replied “I know”. Nabi (Saw) said, “It is equal to a quarter of the Qur’aan. Marry, Marry, Marry.”
Consistency and Ayatul Kursi: Imam Hassan bin Ali (as) says, “A person once asked: “Oh Rasulallaah (Saw) what does that person receive who recites Ayatul Kursi after every Fard Salaat ? Nabi (Saw) said: ” That person remains under the protection of Allaah until the next Salaat.”
Imam Hussain ( as ) says: Rasulallaah (Saw) asked; “Do you know which Ayat in the Qur’aan is most lofty? ” I said, Allaah and his Rasul know more.” Nabi (Saw) read Ayatul Kursi.
Blessing in the food: Maa Fatema (as) narrates that one person came to Nabi (Saw) and said that there was absolutely no “Barakat” (blessings) in the things at home. Nabi (Saw) replied, “Why are you neglectful of Ayatul Kursi.”
Whenever Aayatul Kursi is recited upon food, Allaah Ta’aala will increase the Barakat in that food or curry. Nabi ( Saw ) further narrated that Allaah the Lofty did not create any thing in the skies or on earth, in Jannat or Jahannam, loftier than Ayatul Kursi.
Imam Ali (as) says “I have heard Rasulallaah (Saw) say that person who recites Ayatul Kursi after every Salaat, only death prevents him from Jannat and who recites it whilst retiring to his sleeping place, Allaah will protect his house, his neighbours and even his surroundings.
Easy child-birth: Maa Fatima Zahra (as) narrates,”When the time approached for her delivery, then Nabi (Saw) ordered Umme Salama (as) and Zainab (as) to go to Fatima and recite Ayatul Kursi and “Inna Rabba Kumullaah” (the whole Ayat) and the last two Quls and blow on her.
Oh Allaah You are Pure and all praises are for You. Although you have the Power (and Might), you do not apprehend.
