Merits of Ayatul Kursi

23 May 2018 Ref-No#: 694

Assalumu 3alaykoum.

I want to know the veracity of these two sayings about Ayatul Kursi

1) Whoever recites ayatul kursi when he leaves his home, he will have 70 000 angels protecting him to the left, right in front and behind us. And if we die before returning home, a reward equal to 40 martyrs will be awarded to us.

2) When reciting ayatul kursi 40 times daily at sundown, a reward of 40 Hajj will be awarded.

Allah y jazikoum bi kheir

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

We were unable to find these two narrations in any of books of Ahadith at our disposal.

The only book in which they are narrated is Nuzha al-Majalis. However, no referance of chain of transmission is mentioned.

Thus, it will not be permissible to quote these narrations.

That, however, does not invalidate any of the other various narrations mentioned in authentic books of Ahadith.
