Ayat al-Kursi is the most excellent and powerful verse in the Holy Quran for the following reasons:
In this verse the names of Allah (swt) are mentioned more number of times than in any other verse. For example, in some verses of the Quran Allah’s name may be mentioned up to ten times. However, in Ayat al-Kursi, the names of Allah (swt) have been mentioned seventeen times.
In Ayat al-Kursi six attributes (sifat) of Allah (swt) have been mentioned in this single verse. The attributes include: The Divine Oneness (Wahdaniyyah) of Allah (swt), His Life (Hayah), His Knowledge (Ilm), His Divine Power (Qudrah), His Kingdom (Mulk) and His Will (Iradah). (Sharh Sahih Muslim: Fadail al-Qur?an, under Surat al-Kahf & Ayat al-Kursi. Allamah Ghulam Rasul Saidi)
There are many hadith which show clearly that Ayatal kursi is the most powerful verse in the Holy Quran.
Imam Muslim writes that Ubayy bin Kab (ra) narrated that one day, Prophet Mohammad (SAW) asked, “O Ubayy! Which is the most excellent verse of the Quran? Ubayy replied, “Allah and His Messenger know best” The Prophet (saw) said, “In your opinion, which is the most excellent verse of the Quran? Ubayy bin Kab replied, “Allah! There is no God but He (i.e. Ayat al-Kursi). Prophet Mohammad (saw) placed his hand on his chest and said, “O Ubayy bin Kab! May your knowledge be pleasant for you”.
(Sahih Muslim: Fada?il al-Qur?an, under Surat al-Kahf & Ayat al-Kursi. Imam Muslim)
Imam Tirmidhi writes that Abu Hurayrah (ra) reports that the Prophet Mohammad (saw) said that whoever recites the first verses of Surat al-Muminun and then Ayat al-Kursi in the morning, will get Allah’s (swt) protection till the evening. Likewise, whoever reads this during the night, will get Allah’s protection till the morning.
(al-Jam al-Tirmidhi: Tafsir of Surat al-Baqarah, under Ayat al-Kursi. Imam al-Tirmidhi)
Imam Abu Dawud writes that Wathala (RA) reported that one day a man came to the Prophet Mohammad (saw) and asked, “Which is the most excellent verse in the Holy Quran? To which the Prophet (saw) replied, “Ayat al-Kursi”.
(Sunan Abi Dawud: Fadail al-Quran. Imam Abu Dawud)
Imam Darmi writes that satan runs away from a home in which Ayat al-Kursi is recited and does not come back until the next morning.
Qadi Thanaullah writes that Abu Hurayrah (ra) reports that the Prophet Mohammad (saw) said that Ayat al-Kursi is the chief verse of the Holy Quran. Anas (ra) reports that the Prophet Mohammad (saw) said that Ayat al-Kursi is equivalent to one-fourth of the Quran. Abu Amamah (ra) narrates that the Prophet Mohammad (saw) said that if a person recites Ayat al-Kursi at night before going to sleep, Allah (swt) will protect him, his house and also the neighboring houses.
Hence Aytal Kursi is a powerful verse which should be read to seek Allah’s (swt) protection from the evil. Since ruqyah healing is done to cure the problem of evil eye so Ayatal kursi is useful in ruqyah.
