Ayatul Kursi in English
اللَّهُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لاَ تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلاَ نَوْمٌ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلاَ يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ (Qur’an 2:255) إِلاَّ بِمَا شَاءَ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاواتِ وَالأَرْضَ وَلاَ يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ
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 Highest, the Greatest. (Qur’an 2:255)
Benefits of Ayatul Kursi

It Means to Enter Paradise:
It is a dream of every Muslim to enter Paradise. The life we spend here is nothing like the life we will spend in Paradise. Ayatul Kursi provides a direct benefit in this term. By reciting this ayat, you’re booking your ticket for a better lifestyle.
“Whoever recites Aayat al Kursiy immediately after each prescribed prayer, there will be nothing standing between him and his entering Paradise except death.” Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
It is Means of Protection:
One of the most popular benefits of Ayatul Kursi is that it protects you from dangerous eyes. Most Muslim scholars always recommend this Dua against the evil eye. If you feel that your life is becoming challenging or you’re not focusing on your goals, then you should make a habit of reciting this Ayat.
Think of it as a bodyguard that protects you 24 hours a day. And most importantly, your protection is not related to physical, you are also saved spiritually.
It is Means of Protection From The Evil Eye:
If you feel that someone is jealous of your work or is actively trying their best to affect your performance – there’s no better way to deal with this just as to recite the Ayatul Kursi.
An evil eye doesn’t mean that the person has bad traits about him, sometimes a person says something bad that you want to roll back. Whatever the circumstance, recite Ayatul Kursi and you will be protected.
