Ayatul Kursi

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
'Allahu laaa 'ilaaha 'illaa Huu. 'Al-Hayyul-Qayyuum. Laa ta'-khuzuhuu sinatunw-wa laa nawm. Lahuu maa fissamaawaati wa ma fil-'arz. Man-zallazii yashfa-'u'indahuuu 'illaa bi-'iznih? Ya'-lamu maa bayna 'aydiihim wa maa khalfahum. Wa laa yuhiituuna bi-shay-'im-min 'ilmihiii 'illaa bimaa shaaa'. Wasi-'a Kursiyyu-hus-Samaawaati wal-'arz; wa laa ya-'uuduhuu hifzu-humaa wa Huwal-'Aliyyul-'Aziim. Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.

Let us refer to ta'wil of the word 'Ism a'zam (Supreme Name of God):

Imam Jafar as-Sâdiq has said: "Allah has concealed one name, i.e., the supreme Name and He has 360 names." (Lughât, Sin, p. 175). The supreme Name or the great secret is in two forms: as a word and as a person. As a word, it is "al-hayy'l-qayyûm" (the Everliving, the Everlasting) (2:255); (3:2) and as a person it is the True Guide, i.e., the Prophet and Imam of the time (See Wajh, p. 124-29).

'Allahu laaa 'ilaaha 'illaa Huu 'Al-Hayyul-Qayyuum (Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal) is the first sentence of Ayatul Kursi, the most important ayat of the Holy Qur'an 2:255). From Ismaili point of view, we say that the beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam is living and his Noor is eternal. Therefore, today we will implore him with this most powerful prayer.

Now let us present a bouquet of Ya Hayyul-Qayyum, Ya Aliyul Azim, Ya Sahebuz-Zaman, Ya Hazar Imam for this prayer session:
