said: "Abu Mundhir! Do you know which Ayah in Allah's Book is the greatest?" I replied: " It is Allah la ilaha illa Huwal-Haiyul-Qayum (Allah! none has the right to be worshiped but He, the Ever Living..." (2:256) Thereupon he

Commentary: The words cited in the Hadith occur in the beginning of Ayat-ul-Kursi (No.256 of Surat Al-Baqarah of the holy Qur'an)
used to seek protection against the evil of jinn and the evil eyes till Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas were revealed. After the were revealed, he took to them for seeking Allah's protection and left everything else besides them.
Commentary: These Surah are also called 'Al-Mu'awwidhatain' which mean two Surah which provide protection. It is, therefore very useful to seek the protection of Allah by reciting them.
"A lot of magnetic personalities say this or that, leaders command this or that, and the governors do this or that, but few sit in their living rooms and remember Allah while their time passes amongst people.

I don't want to be held accountable for misleading people on the Day of Judgment and I know that when you read something on the internet there is a big chance its probably fabricated so NONE of my hadiths are from internet sources. I will inshallah get them from my own collection of books like Riyad-Us-Saliheen and Muntakab Ahadith. I try my best to double check everything I post but I'm human and I make mistakes so if you see anything that seems 'off' to you please let me know.
