❝THE SECRETS OF AYATUL KURSI❞
Let’s read it once, before unfolding its secrets, In shā’Allāh.
❝allāhu lā ʾilāha ʾillā huwa l-ḥayyu l-qayyūmu lā taʾkhudhuhū sinatun wa-lā nawmun lahū mā fī s-samāwāti wa-mā fī l-ʾarḍi man dhā lladhī yashfaʿu ʿindahū ʾillā bi-ʾidhnihī yaʿlamu mā bayna ʾaydīhim wa-mā khalfahum wa-lā yuḥīṭūna bi-shayʾin min ʿilmihī ʾillā bi-mā shāʾa wasiʿa kursiyyuhu s-samāwāti wa-l-ʾarḍa wa-lā yaʾūduhū ḥifẓuhumā wa-huwa l-ʿaliyyu l-ʿaẓīm❞
― Sūrah al-Baqarah (The Cow), Chapter 2, verse 255.
Ayatul Kursi is made up of 09 (nine) sentences:
―allāhu lā ʾilāha ʾillā huwa l-ḥayyu l-qayyūm
―lā taʾkhudhuhū sinatun wa-lā nawm
―lahū mā fī s-samāwāti wa-mā fī l-ʾarḍi
―man dhā lladhī yashfaʿu ʿindahū ʾillā bi-ʾidhnihī
―yaʿlamu mā bayna ʾaydīhim wa-mā khalfahum
―wa-lā yuḥīṭūna bi-shayʾin min ʿilmihī ʾillā bi-mā shāʾa
―wasiʿa kursiyyuhu s-samāwāti wa-l-ʾarḍa
―wa-lā yaʾūduhū ḥifẓuhumā
―wa-huwa l-ʿaliyyu l-ʿaẓīm
The first sentence ― allāhu lā ʾilāha ʾillā huwa l-ḥayyu l-qayyūm ― is a beautiful sentence which ends with two of Allāh’s name; Al-ḥayy (The Living) and Al-qayyūm (The Source of all establishment).
Sentence No. 01 has something in common with Sentence No. 09 ― wa-huwa l-ʿaliyyu l-ʿaẓīm ― Two names is the last sentence as well, Most High and Most Great.
Before going to the second sentence, lets speak something about security. Security guards have a very hard job. They have to guard for hours and hours, maybe 8 or 12 or even more.
What tends to happen when you’re guarding something?
You tend to get tired, sleepy.
Allāh says about himself in the second sentence ― lā taʾkhudhuhū sinatun wa-lā nawm ― Neither drowsiness befalls Him nor sleep, i.e., He does not get exhausted and goes to sleep. Getting exhausted and sleeping is for the creations.
Now, lets look at the the 8th sentence ― wa-lā yaʾūduhū ḥifẓuhumā ―Guarding the skies and the earth does not exhaust Him.
The second sentence is actually connected to the eighth sentence.
Now, lets have a look at the third sentence ― lahū mā fī s-samāwāti wa-mā fī l-ʾarḍi ― He owns whatever is in the skies and the earth. Before understanding this further, we need to understand two names of Allāh; Maalik (Owner) and Malik (King). There’s a huge difference between a King and an Owner. Ownership is about objects, but Kingdom is about controlling people. Allāh says, that He owns whatever is in the skies and the earth. The ayah is about ownership. So every single thing is owned by Allāh. And what does the sevents sentence say ― wasiʿa kursiyyuhu s-samāwāti wa-l-ʾarḍa ― His thrne extends the Heavens and the Earth. When Allāh is talking about His throne, he is talking about His kingdom. So, Allāh is Maalik and Malik. Both completing the picture.
Here’s the fourth sentence ― man dhā lladhī yashfaʿu ʿindahū ʾillā bi-ʾidhnihī ― Who is it that may intercede with Him except with His permission ― This ayah is about nobody having any authority unless Allāh gives it to them. And here’s the sixth sentence ― wa-lā yuḥīṭūna bi-shayʾin min ʿilmihī ʾillā bi-mā shāʾa ― They know nothing of His knowledge, ʾillā (except) bi-mā shāʾa (Whoever He wants to give knowledge to).
So, the fourth and the sixth sentence is co-related.
The first and the ninth.
The second and the eighth.
The third and the seventh.
The fourth and the sixth.
Fifth sentence ― yaʿlamu mā bayna ʾaydīhim wa-mā khalfahum ― Allāhu Akbar! Allāh knows, what is ahead of them and what is behind them; In the middle of all sentences is the sentence where Allāh says, he knows what is before this ayah and what is after this ayah.
Who speaks like that?
The way in which Allāh speaks is awesome!
Allāh revealed this Qur’ān not in writing but in speech.
It is a Linguistic Miracle.
Linguists say, it cannot be speech.. It must have been written. Its not possible!
It was given to Prophet (SAW) by Allāh as speech!
People ask us for Miracles! Qur’ān is a living miracle! open your eyes people!
