The Throne Verse - Fine Art Print
Description: The Throne Verse (Aytul Kursi) is the 255th verse of the 2nd surah of the Quran, Al-Baqarah. The verse speaks about how nothing and nobody is regarded to be comparable to Allah. This is one of the best-known verses of the Quran and is widely memorised and displayed in the Islamic world for protection. This exquisite piece is set on a beautiful emerald backdrop, and would make the perfect addition to any home.
The story: An amazing fact about the Ayat al-Kursi is that it displays an internal symmetry comprising concentric looping verses surrounding a pivotal chiasm 'x' of the type A B C D X D' C' B' A'. The reciter imagines him or herself walking through Aytul Kursi until reaching the centre, seeing what is in front and what is behind, and finds they represent a perfect reflection of each other. The central chiasm is represented by "yaʿlamu mā bayna ʾaydīhim wa-mā ḫalfahum" meaning "He knows what is before them and what is behind them". This is flanked symmetrically outwards so that A corresponds to A', B corresponds to B', and so forth. For example, line 3 "he is the lord of the heavens and the earth" corresponds to line 7 "his throne extends over heavens and earth".
Abu Hurairah Radiyallahu 'anhu narrates that Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings be upon Him) said: For everything there is a crest, and indeed the crest of the Qur'an is Surah Al-Baqarah. And in it there is a verse, which is the chief of all the verses in the Qur'an, and that is Aytul kursi.
