In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
2.255: Allah is He besides Whom there is no god, the Ever living, the Self-subsisting by Whom all subsist; slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep; whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His; who is he that can intercede with Him but by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, and they cannot comprehend anything out of His knowledge except what He pleases, His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth, and the preservation of them both tires Him not, and He is the Most High, the Great.
2.256: There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.
2.257: Allah is the guardian of those who believe. He brings them out of the darkness into the light; and (as to) those who disbelieve, their guardians are Shaitans who take them out of the light into the darkness; they are the inmates of the fire, in it they shall abide.

The 6th Imam, Jafar as-Sadiq has said:
“When Allah, the Noble and Grand, commanded the verse (mentioned at the end of this tradition) to descend down to the Earth, they (the verses) attached themselves to the Throne (of Allah) and said, ‘O Lord! Where are you sending us to? Are you sending us to a place of [the People of] transgressions and sins?’ Allah, the Noble and Grand, revealed to them (the verses), ‘Go down as I swear by My Greatness and My Majesty that not a single person from amongst the progeny of Muhammad and their followers (Shia) shall recite you after that which I have made obligatory upon them (the five canonical prayers) every day except that I will glance at them with a special glance with My eyes seventy times every day and with every glance, I will fulfill seventy of their desires and I will accept (their supplications) even though they have sins (on their record) and these verses will make up the basis of The Book (Ummul Kitab – meaning Suratul Hamd) and the verse, ‘Allah bears witness that there is no other entity worthy of worship except for Him and so do the angels (bear witness to this) and so do those who possess knowledge’ [Q. 3:18] and Ayatul Kursi and the verse of dominion, ‘Say: To Allah belongs the Kingdom…’ [Q. 3:26].”
