⚪ In his ‘Musnad’, Ad-Daarimy recorded that Ibn Mas’uud said, “Shaytaan (Satan) leaves the house where Surah Al-Baqarah is recited, and when he leaves, he leaves air.”
⚪ Ad-Darimi has also recorded that Ash-Sha’bi said that ‘Abdullah bin Mas’uud said, “If someone recites ten ayaat of Surah Al-Baqarah in one night, then the Shaytaan will not enter his house in that night (, these ten ayaat are).
▪️Four of the beginning (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:1-4),
▪️Ayah Al-Kursi (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:255),
▪️the following two Ayaat (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:256-257) and.
▪️the last three Ayaat (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:284-286).”
⚪ In another narration, Ibn Mas’uud said, “Then the Shaytaan will not come near him or his family, and he will not be touched by anything he dislikes. Even if these ayaat are recited over a senile person, they will wake him up.” (Ad-Daarimy 2:322)

Abu Hurayra reports that the Messenger of Allah (salla-llahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “In Surah Al-Baqarah is an ayah which is the best ayah of all the ayat in the Qur’an. Reading this in a house, the Shaytan leaves it: ayatul-kursi.”
This report has also been transmitted on another Isnad: from Za’ida by Hakim Ibn Jubayr.
