The most powerful verse in Quran!
Ubayy bin Ka’b (radiAllahu anhu) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Do you know which Ayah in Allah’s Book is the greatest?
I said: ‘Allah and His messenger know best.’
He (peace be upon him) 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 (peace be upon him) 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)’.”
Allahu la ilaha ilia huwal-Hayyul- Qayyum.
Allah. There is no god but He, the Ever-Living, the One who takes care of all that exists.
La ta-khu-zhu-hu sinatun wa la nawm.
Nothing can make Him drowsy or make Him sleep
La hu ma fissamawati wa ma fil-ard
His are all things in the heavens and on earth.
Man dhallladhi yashfa ‘ou ‘indahu ilia bi idhnihi
Who is there can intercede* in His presence unless He allows it?
Ya’lamu ma bayna aydiyhim wa ma khalfahum
He knows what (appears to His creatures as) before or after or behind them,
wa la yuhituna bi shai’im-min ‘ilmihi illa bima sha’a
While they will never have any of HisKnowledge unless He wills.
Wa si’a kursiyuhus-samaawaa ti wal-ard
His ‘Kursi’ contains the heavens and the earth,
Wa la ya-ooduhu Hifzuhuma
and He doesn’t feel tired in guarding and preserving them
Wahuwal- ‘aliyul- ‘azeem
for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).
