The Clear Quran

Some concepts, such as Allah’s ‘Kursi, ’are difficult to translate because they are beyond human comprehension. However, the translation team selected the word ‘Seat’ so that it may also reflect the meaning of ‘knowledge and authority’—a concept that is reported by Abdullah ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him). A footnote has also been added for more insight on the difference between Kursi (Seat) and ’Arsh (Throne). For more details, see verse 2:255.
