Surah Baqarah Verses (285-286)
Following are the verses of Surah Baqarah with their translations. Have a look:
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
“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.””
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
“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 aid us over the disbelieving people.”

Surah Baqarah Last 2 Ayat Benefits For A Better Standard Of Living!
Now is the time to discuss the benefits of these verses. Since these verses were revealed on the eve of Meeraj, they already are of great importance. Before we begin the benefits, there is a narration from Sayyidna Ibn ‘Abbas (Radhi-Allahu Anh): the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam) said that Allah Almighty has sent forth these two verses out of the treasures of Paradise and the ‘Rahman had already written them by His hand two thousand years earlier than the creation of all things and beings.
Protection At Night!
Narrated by Ibn Mas’ood (radiyallaahu ‘anhu), he heard the Prophet saying:
“Whoever recites the two verses at the end of Sooratul-Baqarah in the night, they will suffice him.” (Bukhaaree 5009, Muslim 808)
According to this hadith, it means that these verses are meant to protect a believer from the Shayatan at night. When the person recites these verses before sleeping, he/she is protecting himself/herself from the evil and despise acts of Shayatan. Not just he will be saved but will also be accredited with virtues and rewards.
Source Of Goodness/Light!
In the tafsir of Ibn Kathir on these two verses, it is stated by Ibn Masud:
“While the Messenger of Allah was with Jibril, he heard a noise from above. Jibril lifted his sight to the sky and said, ‘This is a door that was opened just now in heaven, and it was never opened before.’ An angel came down through the door to the Prophet and said, `Receive the good news of two lights that you have been given and which no Prophet before you was given: the Opener of the Book (Al-Fatihah) and the last Ayat in Surat Al-Baqarah. You will not read a letter of them, but you will be granted its benefit.’” (Muslim)
Many accounts of the last two verses of Surah Baqarah say that it was revealed to Holy Prophet (Saww) from under the throne of Allah Taala! He further emphasized on the importance of verses by asking companions to teach them to their wives and children.
Allah says in the Holy Quran:
“To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. Whether you show what is within yourselves or conceal it, Allah will bring you to account for it. Then He will forgive whom He wills and punish whom He wills, and Allah is over all things capable.”
Which is like a hundred other verses, a true word from Almighty. He has mentioned the Surah Baqarah last 2 ayat benefits so it is now up to us to obey the command in order to achieve a better and happy life. Either read the verses before sleeping or listen to the recitation by numerous known scholars.
