Reading Ayatul Kursi
We have already done one lesson regarding what to read after every fardh salaah. Click here to read more.
There is another action we will learn which will take us straight to Jannah! Interested? Well, let’s quickly find out and start doing this action.
Our beloved Nabi ﷺ has taught us that:
“Whoever recites Ayat al-Kursi after every Salaah, the only barrier between him and Jannah is death.” (Sunan Nasa’i)
This means that by reading Ayatul Kursi after every fardh salaah, the only thing that will be stopping us from entering Jannah will be death. That is how certain Jannah will become for us. Amazing right?
What is Ayatul Kursi?
Ayatul Kursi is a verse found in Surah Baqarah. It is the 255th verse in this surah (Another way to find it, is to go to the 3rd Juzz in the Quran and it is the 3rd verse).

اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ ۚ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ ۚ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ۗ مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِندَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ ۚ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ ۖ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ ۚ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ ۖ وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ
What we need to do:
From today we need to start doing the following so we can be guaranteed Jannah:
- Read 5 times salah every day.
- Memorise ayatul kursi.
- After every salah read it.
That’s all we need to do! Easy right?
