Translation of Ayat Al-Kursi

God! There is no God but Him, the All-Living, the Self-Subsisting (All-Sustaining One). Slumber does not overtake Him, nor does sleep. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. Who is it that shall intercede with Him, except by His permission? He knows what lies before them and what lies behind them. And they do not comprehend anything of His knowledge except that which He wills. His Seat (of Divinity) encompasses the heavens and the earth, and preserving them does not fatigue Him. For He is the Ever-Exalted, the Magnificent. (Quran 2:255)
