The final two verses of the Surah Baqarah (285–286) are also referred to as “Amana Rasul.” Two of the most significant verses in the Quran are found in the last two Ayats of Suraah Baqaarah. Each word has value and is necessary because of its importance. The longest Suraah in the Holy Quran is Suraah Al-Baqarah. Each verse of this Surah is therefore very significant. Beyond our ability to count, the final two verses of Surah Al-Baqrah have various advantages.
The Arabic text of the final two ayats of Surah Baqarah
آمَنَ الرَّسُولُ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مِن رَّبِّهِ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ ۚ كُلٌّ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلَائِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِ ۚ وَقَالُوا سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا ۖ غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ
لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ ۗ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ ۖ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا ۚ أَنتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ
English translation of the final two ayats of Surah Baqarah
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
285. The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.”
286. Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. “Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us, and forgive us, and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.”
Principles and Advantages of the Final Ayats
The second and longest chapter of the Quran is Suraah Al-Baqaarah (the Arabic term “Baqarah” meaning “The Heifer” or “The Cow”). Surah al-Baqarah commands believers to fast throughout the month of Ramadan. It has 286 verses (ayahs), 6,201 words, and 25,500 characters. The last two Ayahs of Surah Baqarah are among the most significant verses in the Quran. Clearly, every word is vital and significant, as several hadiths from the Prophet (SAW) attest. These verses should motivate you to incorporate them into your everyday life.
It is reported from Hazrat ‘Ali (RA) that he said:
“I do not consider it fitting for anyone who has understood Islam to sleep (at night) until he has recited Ayat Al- Kursi-and the ending of Surat Al-Baqarah, for they are a gift to your Prophet (SAW) from the treasure which lies beneath the Throne.” (Narrated by Ibn Mardawaih)
Protection against Black Magic and other evils
According to the Islam, the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was once attacked by sorcerers, but he negated their impact by reciting passages from the Quran. In different guidelines, certain sections of the Quran are characterized as having a favorable influence on a person’s overall well-being in terms of counteracting and mitigating the effects of witchcraft and being a more devout Muslim. The Quran has a collection of Ayats (Surah Baqarah) and short Surahs that should be recited as protection and an antidote against Black Magic, Jinn, Witchcraft, Shirr, Sorcery, and other evils.
