Ayat al-Kursi

The Throne Verse (Arabic: آيَة الْكُرْسِي, ʾāyat al-kursī) is the 255th verse of the 2nd surah of the Quran, Al-Baqarah (Q2:255). The verse speaks about how nothing and nobody is regarded to be comparable to Allah.This is one of the best-known verses of the Quran and is widely memorised and displayed in the Muslim world. It is often recited to ward off evil spirits.

These two verses in Sura Al-Baqara are very clear that no friend can intercede to his friend on the day of Judgment just because of their friendship or partnership (O you who believe, Spend from what have provided you, before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship nor intercession). This is stated in verse 2:254. It is clear that mere friendship or partnership will never allow intercession. In verse 2:255 which is known as Ayatul Kursi, it is stating that no one can intercede but only by Allah's permission. There is no contradiction at all if you understand the real translation of the verses.

Verse 2:254 refutes materialistic intercession, while verse 2:255 states the real intercession by permission of Allah.

Wassalam.

Yes, the two verses are included because many of our leading Scholars relying on authentic Hadeeths say that according to precaution, Ayatul Kursi is three verses ending with Khalidoon.
