* Ayah 1-5, 255-257, 284-286
When someone recites these 10 verses from Surah Al-Baqarah, Shaytan will not enter his house at night. Shaytan will also not come near him or his family, nor he will not be touched by anything that he dislikes.
Also, `Abdullah bin Mas`ud said, “Shaytan flees from the house where Surat Al-Baqarah is heard.” This Hadith was collected by An-Nasa’i in Al-Yawm wal-Laylah, and Al-Hakim recorded it in his Mustadrak, and then said that its chain of narration is authentic, although the Two Sahihs did not collect it.
In his Musnad, Ad-Darimi recorded that Ibn Mas`ud said, “Shaytan departs the house where Surat Al-Baqarah is being recited, and as he leaves, he passes gas.”
Ad-Darimi also recorded that Ash-Sha`bi said that `Abdullah bin Mas`ud said, “Whoever recites ten Ayat from Surat Al-Baqarah in a night, then Shaytan will not enter his house that night. (These ten Ayat are) four from the beginning, Ayat Al-Kursi (255), the following two Ayat (256-257) and the last three Ayat.”
In another narration, Ibn Mas`ud said, “Then Shaytan will not come near him or his family, nor will he be touched by anything that he dislikes. Also, if these Ayat were to be recited over a senile person, they would wake him up.”
Further benefits of Ayatul Kursi:
Narrated by Abu Huraira:
“Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “If anyone recites in the morning Ha-Mim al-Mu’min to ‘to Him is the final goal, and the Throne Verse, he will be guarded by them till the evening, and if anyone recites them in the evening he will be guarded by them till the morning.”
~ Al-Tirmidhi – Hadith 2144
Ibn Hibbaan reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“Whoever recites Ayatul-Kursi after each obligatory prayer, then nothing can prevent him from entering Paradise except death.”
Imam al-Mahamli (rah) narrates in his “Fawaid” from Ibn Masud (RadiAllahu Anhu):
“A man said: O Messenger of Allah ﷺ teach me something through which Allah will benefit me. The Prophet ﷺ said: Recite Ayat al Kursi, Allah will protect you, your children, also protect your house rather even the houses which are near to yours.”
~ Imam Jalal ud-din Suyuti in Dur ul Munthur, (2/6)
