 In the name of Allah the Most Merciful, and Compassionate Allah

There is no god but He,

The Living, the Everlasting, 
Slumber seizes Him not, neither sleep,
To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. 
Who is there that can intercede with His, except by His leave? 
He knows what lies before them and what is after them, 
And they comprehend not anything of His Knowledge save as He wills. 
His throne comprises the heavens and the earth,
The preserving of them fatigues Him not, 
And He is the All-High, All-Glorious. 

[Al-Quran: Surat al-Baqarah, Ayah 255] 

Allah! There is no god but He - the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him Nor Sleep. His are all things In the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede In His presence except As he permitteth? He knoweth What (appeareth to His creatures As) Before or After or Behind them. Nor shall they compass Aught of his knowledge Except as He willeth. His throne doth extend Over the heavens And on earth, and He feeleth No fatigue in guarding And preserving them, For He is the Most High. The Supreme (in glory). | Quran 2:255

Allahu la ilaha illa Huwa, Al-Haiyul-Qaiyum

La ta'khudhuhu sinatun wa la nawm,

lahu ma fis-samawati wa ma fil-‘ard

Man dhal-ladhi yashfa'u 'indahu illa bi-idhnihi

Ya'lamu ma baina aidihim wa ma khalfahum,

wa la yuhituna bi shai'im-min 'ilmihi illa bima sha'a

Wasi'a kursiyuhus-samawati wal ard,

wa la ya'uduhu hifdhuhuma

Wa Huwal 'Aliyul-Adheem

اللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلَّا بِمَا شَاءَ وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَلَا يَئُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ

Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
