The Virtue of the Last two Verses of Surah Al-Baqarah

The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:
"Whosoever reads the last two verses from Surat Al-Baqarah, in a night, (then that will be) sufficient2 for him." [Bukhari and Muslim]
2. Meaning it will grant him the reward of night prayer in reciting the Qur’an. It was said that it meant that it would be sufficient for him (in protection) from all calamities. It was said that it would be sufficient for him from the evil of the devils. And it was said that they (i.e. the recitation of the two verses) would drive the evil of mankind and the devils away from him.




The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:
”The Qur’an and its people, those who used to act upon it in the life of this world will come forth on the Day of Resurrection. At the head would be Suratul Baqarah and Aal ‘Imraan, they would come like two shades, and two black clouds [to shade those who acted upon them], and two groups of birds in rows. They would argue on behalf of those who acted upon them.

[Muslim, Ahmad and At-Tirmidhee]




The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:
I was given these final Ayaat from Suratul Baqarah from a treasure underneath the Throne, no prophet was given them before me.
[Ahmad, At-Tabarani and ibn Hibbaan, declared authentic by Albani]



The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:
Read these last two Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah, for indeed my Lord has given them to me from underneath the throne.”
[Ahmad and At-Tabarani. Declared authentic by al Albani]



From Ibn 'Abbas (R.A) " who said:
"While Jibra'eel (Gibrael) " `May Peace be upon him' was sitting with the Prophet !, he heard the opening of a gate above him. So he raised his head and said: `This is a gate from the shies that has opened today, which has never opened before this day.' So an angel descended from it (the gate). So he Jibra'eel " said: "This is an angel that has descended to the earth, which has never descended except today. He gave Salam and said: 'Receive glad tidings [Oh Muhammad ! with two lights which have been given to you, that have never been given to a Prophet before you: The Opening of the Book (i.e. Surat Al-Fatihah) and the end of Surat Al-Baqarah. Never do you read a letter
from either of the two (Surahs) except that you are given it.3[by Muslim]

3- Which means that you are given its reward (i.e. the reward of recitation)"



The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:
Indeed Allaah had written a book before He created the heavens and earth by two thousand years. He revealed two verses from it that with which He concluded Suratul Baqarah. Shaytaan will not draw close to a house in which they are read for three nights.
[At-Tirmidhee and authenticated by Albani]



The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said:
Whoever reads Ayatul Kursee after every obligatory prayer, nothing will prevent this person from entering Jannah except death.
[An Nasa’i and declared authentic by ibn Hibban and al Albani]
