Surah Baqarah Verse 255
Allāh – 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 Kursī extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
The other night I was reciting ayat-ul-kursi for my daughter’s protection and Allah swt opened the doors of understanding for me. Since my daughter was born the Doctors are doing so many genetic tests but have not been able to evaluate which chromosome out of 46 has a minor deletion… if there is any deletion. They are not able to diagnose yet and they cannot tell how her future turnout to be either , if she will grow out of these delays or she will have other developmental problems in future. I was thinking... How could they tell?
Allah swt says in Ayat-ul-Kursi “Ya`lamu Mā Bayna 'Aydīhim Wa Mā Khalfahum” He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them
“Wa Lā Yuĥīţūna Bishay'in Min `Ilmihi 'Illā Bimā Shā'a” “and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills”
My daughter (Aavisa) is not like this because something went wrong but she is like this because Allah swt destined her to be like this. So there is no point to regret rather it’s time to seek forgiveness and be thankful because it could have been worse. If this is Allah swt’s izn (permission) then I’m grateful ‘Allhamdulillah ala Kulli Haal”(Praise be to Allah in all conditions) May Allah SWT give me the tawfeeq (ability) to earn maximum deeds out of this opportunity and bless her with health. Ameen
“Wa Lā Ya'ūduhu Ĥifžuhumā Wa Huwa Al-`Alīyu Al-`Ažīm” –“and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great”
Now I understand why we read ayat-ul-kursi for protection because most exalted and most supreme is guarding us. Is there any one blessed then us? Alhumdulillah, Alhumdulillah, Allhamdulillahi ala kuli haal (Praise be to Allah in all conditions)
