Lecture about Ayaat-ul-Kursi (61Mb)
255. Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. [This Verse 2:255 is called Ayaat-ul-Kursî.]
Sura 2. Al-Baqarah (The Cow)
 Allah’s knowledge encompasses every aspect of His creations in the past, present and future.
 Chair or footstool. It is not to be confused with al-Arsh (the Throne), which is infinitely higher and greater than al-Kursi.
