آيةُ الكُرْسي

البقرة 2

اللهُ لا إلهَ إلا هُوَ الحيُّ القَيُّوم لا تَأخُذُهُ سِنّةُ ولا نَوْمٌ لّهُ ما في السماوات وما في الأرْضِ من ذا الذي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إلا بِإذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ ما في بيَْنَ أيْديهِم وما خَلفَهُم ولا يُحيِطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ من عِلْمِهِ إلا بِما شاء وَسِعُ كُرْسيِّهُ السَماواتِ والأرْضَ ولا يَؤُدُهُ حِفْظُهُما وهُوَ العَليُّ العَظيمُ

God! 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 permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).

God speaks the Truth.

Chapter 3, Verse 18-19

Shahid-Allāhu annahū lā ilāha illa Hū. Wa ’l-malā’ikatu wa ūlu ’l-`ilmi qā’iman bil-qisţ. Lā ilāha illa Hū al-`Azīzu ’l-Hakīm. Inna ’d-dīna `ind Allāhi ’l-islām.

سورة آل عمران 18-19

شَهِد اللهَ أنَّهُ لا إله إلا هُوَ والمَلائِكةُ وأولُو العِلْمِ قائِمًا بِالقِسْطِ لا إله إلا هُوَ العَزيزُ الحَكيمُ إنَّ الدينِ عِنْدَ للهِ الإسْلام

God bears witness that there is no god but He—and the angels and men of knowledge—upholding justice; there is no god but He, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. The religion with God is Islam.

Chapter 3, Verse 26-27

Qul ’illāhumma Mālik al-mulki. Tu`tī ’l-mulka man tasha’u wa tanzi`u ’l-mulka mimman tashā’u wa tu`izzu man tashā’u wa tudhillu man tashā’u, bi yadika ’l-khayr, innaka `alā kulli shay’in qadīr. Tūliju ’l-layla fī ’n-nahāri wa tūliju nahāra fī ’l-layl, wa tukhriju ’l-hāyya mina ’l-mayyiti, wa tukhriju ’l-mayyita mina ’l-hāyy, wa tarzuqu man tashā’u bi ghayri hisāb.

سورة آل عمران 26-27

قل اللَّهُمَّ مالكُ المُلْكِ تؤْتي المُلْكَ من تشاء وتَنْزِع المُلْكَ مِمَّن تشاء وتُعِزُ من ‏تشاء وتُذِلُ من تشاءُ بِيَدِكَ الخَيُرَإنكَ على كُلِّ شيءٍ قدير تُولِجُ اللَيْلَ في النَهارِ وتُولِجُ النَهارَ في اللَيْلِ وتُخْرِجُ الحيَّ من المَيِّتِ وتُخْرِجُ المَيِّتَ من الحيِّ وتَرْزُقُ من تَشاءُ بِغَيْرِ حِسابِ

Say: O God, Master of the Kingdom, Thou givest the Kingdom to whom Thou wilt, and seizest the Kingdom from whom Thou wilt, Thou exaltest whom Thou wilt, and Thou abasest whom Thou wilt; in Thy hand is the good; Thou art over all things Powerful. Thou makest the night to enter into the day, and Thou makest the day to enter into the night, Thou bringest forth the living from the dead, and Thou bringest forth the dead from the living, and Thou providest for whomsoever Thou wilt without reckoning.

In the second rak`at, read the Fātiha.

O my Lord! Just as fire consumes firewood, in the same way the envy which is rooted in me consumes all my actions. Purify me, O my Lord, from it and purify me, too, from the anger of my ego. Rid me as well, O my Lord, of the blameworthy ego of the child and reprehensible manners. And, O my Lord, change all my manners to laudable manners and into good actions.
