Allah! there’s no god but He, the living, the self-subsisting, eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things within the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permits? He knows what’s before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass any of His knowledge except as He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and also the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for he’s the foremost High, the Supreme.
This Ayat of Surah Baqarah is understood as Ayat-Ul-Kursi — the verse of the Throne — the Throne being an emblem of power and authority. The Ayat gives an ideal knowledge about Allah and deals together with his attributes in a comprehensive manner. The Holy Prophet PBUH declared it to be an excellent verse of the Holy Quran (Muslim).
Allah is the personal name of 1, God Who is free from all defects and shortcomings, and Who alone is merit worship. The attributes of Allah are different from anything we all know in our present world. he’s Eternal and Ever-living, that is, he’s ‘from the start and shall remain forever and he’s immune from death. His Existence is absolute existence. He doesn’t rely on the other person or thing. he’s the exclusive Master and Owner of the world and also the heavens and nobody else has any part or share in His Rule, His Authority, His Sovereignty, His Attributes, or His Powers. The Quran _says:
“To Allah belongs all that’s within the heavens and on earth” (3:109)
He’s the foremost High, the Supreme. His Majesty and Glory, Knowledge can encompass everything physical and spiritual within the earth and also the heavens. He’s All-powerful and has full authority and control over and also the right to use, anything or house it in any manner He likes and there’s none up to Him to question Him about anything He does or to challenge the commands He issues. But He in His wisdom may grade His creatures and provides one superiority over another. Then by His will and permission, such a 1 may intercede or help in step with the laws and duties laid on him.
His knowledge is complete, absolute, perfect, and all-embracing. he’s alert to the hidden and also the manifest, in addition, because the past is beyond our perception. He also knows what shall be within the future and none of His creatures including the angels and therefore the prophets are often His equal in respect of His knowledge. The Quran, in other places, speaks of absolutely the knowledge of Allah, also because of the limited one among the people:
“He knows what’s before them and what’s behind them, and that they offer no intercession apart from people who are acceptable (21:28) and: “It is He who knows what’s open in speech and what ye hide (in your hearts) “
People encompass nothing of the knowledge of Allah except what He permits to be known to them. Any interference in His affairs would end in chaos. All things require the support of every other for her existence. it’s only Allah who creates by Himself and causes others to exist. he’s the constant support and source of all other types of life. He maintains the existence of heavens and earth and everything contained in them and in doing so, He doesn’t require any rest, because He never tires.
A standard life needs rest for effecting its own activities and also needs double rest to appear after and guard or help others activities. In contrast, absolutely Life is free from any such need for Allah is Supreme and above anything, we can conceive.
