Reciting Ayat Al-Kursi before sleeping


The Prophet of Allah [] said: "When you are about to sleep recite ayat-al-kursi till the end of the verse for there will remain over you a protection from Allah and no devil will draw near to you until morning."

Ayat Al-kursi is found in the Quran
Surah Al-Baqara (The Cow) - Chapter 2 Verse 255

The importance of Ayat Al-kursi

  • Ubayy bin Ka'b [] reported: The Messenger of Allah [] said: "Abu Mundhir! Do you know which Ayah in Allah's Book is the greatest? I said: 'Allah and His messenger know best.'

    He [] again said: 'Do you know which Ayah in Allah's Book, according to you, is the greatest?' I (Abu Mundhir) replied: ‘It is 'Allah la ilaha illa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyum'.[2:255].

    Thereupon he [] patted me in the chest and said, 'Rejoice by your knowledge, O Abu Mundhir! (i.e. may this knowledge be a source of respect, honour and benefit to you)'."
    [Sahih Muslim]
