    Bismillaahi Arraxmaani Arraxiimi

    The first two lines clearly show the complete ( AAYATUL KURSI) followed by the second aayah in the third line which begins ( LAA IKRAAHA FIDDIINI and it ends with ( WALLAHU SAMIICUN CALIIMUN).
    If you have any doubt about that, contact me.
    Assalaamu Caleykum

    The writing is from our holy Qur’an and it’s from the second chapter verse 255 to 256.

    Here is the translation in english
    255. God! There is no god except He, the Living, the Everlasting. Neither slumber overtakes Him, nor sleep. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His permission? He knows what is before them, and what is behind them; and they cannot grasp any of His knowledge, except as He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation does not burden Him. He is the Most High, the Great.
    256. There shall be no compulsion in religion; the right way has become distinct from the wrong way. Whoever renounces evil and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy handle; which does not break. God is Hearing and Knowing.
