Ayaatal Kursi

Ayaatal Kursi, originally uploaded by asiya2.


Allahu la ilaha illa Huwa, Al-Haiyul-Qaiyum La ta’khudhuhu sinatun wa la nawm, lahu ma fis-samawati wa ma fil-‘ard Man dhal-ladhi yashfa’u ‘indahu illa bi-idhnihi Ya’lamu ma baina aidihim wa ma khalfahum, wa la yuhituna bi shai’im-min ‘ilmihi illa bima sha’a Wasi’a kursiyuhus-samawati wal ard, wa la ya’uduhu hifdhuhuma Wa Huwal ‘Aliyul-Adheem

“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 permits? He knows What (appears to His creatures As) Before or After or Behind them. Nor shall they compass Aught of his knowledge Except as He wills. His throne doth extend Over the heavens And on earth, and He feels No fatigue in guarding And preserving them, For He is the Most High. The Supreme (in glory).”
[Surah al-Baqarah 2: 255]

The first time I read this verse, what struck me was the sense of Allah being outside time. I was overwhelmed by the magnitude of His knowledge and I suddenly ‘knew’ that He existed. I wasn’t just reading words, for want of a better expression, the Qu’ran came alive. Ayaatul Kursi (The Verse of the Throne), is special to me for this reason. And so it is a truly sacred blessing to draw it. I say ‘draw’, because I haven’t yet learned calligraphy 🙂
