Reading The Verse Of Throne To Achieve Our Goals

Question

Can we recite the verse of throne to achieve our goals? What is the best time to recite it and what is its importance according to aḥādīth?


Answer

The verse of throne (Ᾱyat-al-Kursī) is not a supplication rather it would be correct to say that it is the most comprehensive statement of the belief in one God. A believer declares his conviction that the Almighty is the sole owner of all the power and sovereignty and declares that he is pure of any attributes, which do not match His mighty status. When we recite this verse we in fact are declaring our limitations and hand the affairs to the Almighty. The wording of the declaration is from the Almighty himself hence the best one. I don't believe that mere recitation of a verse to achieve some worldly goal is recommendable in Islam. Islam required us to be true believers and to live our life according to the directives of Sharī'ah and hand our affairs to God. It teaches us to pray to God for help in all the affairs. However the element of charms which guarantee fulfillment of your requirements is nonexistent in Islamic religious sources.
