Verse of the Throne (of Allah)
Glorified and Exalted is He.
Al Baqarah II: verse 255
“Allaahu Laa Ilaaha illa hua al Hay'yul qay'yoom.
Laa ta’khuzuhoo sinataw (n) walaa Naom.
Lahoo Maa fis'samaa-waati wamaa fil- arz.
Mandal ladee yash'fa-oo inda-hoo il’la bi iznih.
Ya’lamu maa bai-na ayi-deehim wa maa khalfa-hum.
Walaa yuhee-toona bi shayim-min- ilmihee
illaa bimaa shaa-a. wasi-a’ kursi-yuhus-samaawaati wal arz.
Walaa ya-oo-duhoo hif-zuhumaa.
Wa Hual-alee-ul Azeem.”
“Allah is He, besides Whom there is no god, the Ever-Living, the Self-Subsisting
(by Whom allsubsist);
slumber does not overtake Him, nor sleep;
whatever is in the heavens and whatever isin the earth is His;
who is he that can intercede with Him, but by His permission? He knows
what is before them and what is behind them,
and they cannot comprehend of His knowledge,except what He pleases;
His Chair (knowledge) extends over the heavens and the earth; and
the preservation of them both tires Him not;
and He is the Most high, the Great.” II: 255.
