In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
2:255 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.

BENEFIT AND VIRTUE
Narrated by Abu Huraira r.a:
Allah ‘s Apostle ﷺ ordered me to guard the Zakat revenue of Ramadan. Then somebody came to me and started stealing of the foodstuff.
I caught him and said:
“I will take you to Allah’s Messenger ﷺ”.
Then Abu Huraira r.a described the whole narration and said, that person said to me:
“Please don’t take me to Allah’s Messenger ﷺ and I will tell you a few words by which Allah will benefit you”.
“When you go to your bed, recite Ayatul Kursi (2:255) for then there will be a guard from Allah who will protect you all night long, and Shaytan will not be able to come near you till dawn”.
When the Prophet ﷺ heard the story he said to me:
“He who came to you at night, told you the truth although he is a liar and it was Shaytan”.
Al Bukhari 6/530 | 5010
It was narrated that Abu Umaamah r.a said:
The Messenger ﷺ said:
“Whoever recites Aaytul Kursi immediately after each prescribed prayer, there will be nothing standing between him and his entering Paradise except death.”
An Nisai |Ibne Habban
Ash-Sha`bi r.a said that Abdullah Ibn Mas`ud r.a said:
“Whoever recites the 10 verses from Surat Al-Baqarah in a night, and then Shaytan will not enter his house that night”.
In another narration Ibn Mas`ud r.a said:
“The Shaytan will not come near him or to his family, nor will he be touched by anything that he dislikes. Also, if these verses were to be recited over a senile person, they would wake him up”.
