The Clear Quran

Some concepts, such as Allah’s ‘Kursi, ’are difficult to translate because they are beyond human comprehension. The Prophet ﷺ said in a ḥadith reported by Imam Ibn Ḥibban that Allah’s ’Arsh (Throne) is much greater than His Kursi. So, we believe that Allah has a Kursi, which is in front of the Throne. Generally, in the Arabic language, the word kursi means seat or footstool. For more details, see verse 2:255.
