The Meaning of Ayatul-Kursiyy
I start my recitation with the Name of Allah (the One Who deserves to be worshipped), Who is ar-Rahman (the One Who is very merciful to the Believers and non-Believers in this life), and Who is ar-Rahim (the One Who is very merciful to the Believers only in the Hereafter).
Allah is the One Who is the Only God. He is the One Who is attributed with an eternal and everlasting Life (which is without soul, body, blood, bones or need for food). He is the One Who manages and takes care of the world and does not need any one and every one needs Him. He is not seized with somnolence or sleep. To Him belongs what is in the heavens and Earth. No one will intercede, on the Day of Judgment, except with His permission.
He knows all about His creation. They do not know except that which Allah allowed them to know.
His Kursiyy extends farther than the heavens and Earth and He is not exhausted from preserving them.
He is the One Who has the highest status (and does not need a place) and Who rightly has the attributes of exaltedness, glory, greatness, and purity from all imperfection.
