THE TREASURES FROM BENEATH THE THRONE



"On no soul does Allah place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. (Pray: ) “Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which You laid on those before us; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith." (Surah 2: 285-286)

These 2 priceless verses from the Quran would hardly take 10 minutes to memorize off by-heart, but it will fill your life with goodness, both in this world and the Aakhira, In sha Allah. 
1. It is reported on the authority of Ibn Mas’ud from Rasoolillah Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam that he said: “Whoever recited the last two verses of Suratul Baqarah at night, they will be sufficient for him.” [Bukhari]

2. It is reported on the authority of Abu Dharr that he said: “Allah’s Messenger 
Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam said: “I was given the final verses of Surath Al-Baqarah from a treasure trove beneath the Throne; no Prophet before me was given them.” (Ahmad)


3. On the authority of ‘Abdullah, it is reported that: “When Allah’s Messenger Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam was taken on a journey (to the seven heavens), he arrived at Sidrat al-Muntaha- a tree in the seventh Heaven and it is at the entrance to the seventh. All things which ascend from the earth stop and are held there as do all things which descend from above (It is with regard to this that).

Allah (SWT) said: “Behold! the Lote tree was shrouded with that which shrouds.” (Qur’an 53: 16) He (the narrator) said: “It (that which shrouded the tree) was (a covering of) golden butterflies.” He further added: “The Messenger of Allah (SAW) was given three things: He was given five prayers, he was given the concluding verses of Surat Al-Baqarah and forgiveness of sins for those (of his community) who do not associate partners with Allah (SWT).” (Muslim)
4. It is reported from ‘Uqbah Ibn ‘Amir Al-Juhani (RA) that he said that Allah’s Messenger Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam said: “Recite the last two verses from Surat Al-Baqarah, for I was given them from a treasure trove beneath the Throne” (Ahmad)
5. It is reported on the authority of Hudhaifah that Allah’s Messenger Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam said: “We have been favoured over the rest of mankind with three things: I was given these verses from the end of Surat Al- Baqarah from a house of treasure located beneath the Throne: None before me has been given them, and they will not be given to anyone after me.” (Narrated by Ibn Mardawaih)
6. It is reported on the authority of ‘Ali (RA) that he said: “I do not consider it fitting for anyone who has understood Islam to sleep (at night) until he has recited AyatAl- Kursi-and the ending of Surat Al-Baqarah, for they are a gift to your Prophet Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam from the treasure which lies beneath the Throne.” (Narrated by Ibn Mardawaih)
7. It is reported on the authority of An-Nu’man Ibn Basheer from the Prophet Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam that he said: “Verily, Allah (SWT) wrote something two thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, then He (SWT) sent down from it two verses with which He (SWT) sealed (ended) Surat Al-Baqarah (the cow), and if they are not recited in any house for three nights, Satan approaches it.”
(Al-Hakim narrated it thus, and declared it authentic in accordance with the conditions of acceptance applied by Muslim)
8. It is reported from Sa’eed and Ibn ‘Abbas that they said that the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam used to laugh when he read the last verses of Surat Al Baqarah and Ayat Al- Kursi and he would say: “Verily, they are both from the treasure of Allah (SWT), which lies beneath the Throne.” And when he recited: “Whoever does evil will be recompensed accordingly.” (Qur’an 4: 123) And: (And that man will have nothing except what he strives for and that [the fruit of] his striving will be seen, then will he be rewarded with a reward complete.) (Qur’an 53: 39-41), then he would sit back, at ease.” (Narrated by Ibn Mardawaih)
9. It is reported from M’aqal Ibn Yasar that he said: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam said: “I was given Fatihat al Kitab and the closing (verses) of Surat Al-Baqarah from beneath the Throne…” (Narrated by Ibn Mardawaih)
10. It is reported on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas that when Jibreel was sitting with the Prophet (SAW) he heard the sound of a door opening above and he raised his eyes to the heavens and said: “This is a door which has opened in the heavens which has never been opened before.” And an angel descended from it and came to the Prophet Sallalahu Aalaihi Wasallam  and said: “I bring you the good tidings of two Lights which have been given to you and no Prophet before you has ever received them: Fatihat al Kitaba and the final verses of Surat Al-Baqarah; you shall not recite a single letter from them except that it (the reward of the recitation) will be given to you.” (Narrated by Ibn Abi Laila)

Every bit of knowledge comes with a responsibility, so make sure that you share the virtues of the last 2 verses of Surah Baqarah with your family and friends. May the Love, Blessings and Mercy of Allah be forever in your lives!
