Rasulallaah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) stated, "I have been given Aayatul Kursi from the treasures under the Arsh of ALLAH and it was not given to anyone before me." It was stated that when this verse was being brought to Muhammad (AS) by Jibril, 70,000 Angels accompanied him. It is the same with Suratul Fatihah, also known as Umm Kitab.
Imam al-Mahamli (rah) narrates in his “Fawaid” from Ibn Masud (ra): A man said: O Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) teach me something through which Allah will benefit me. The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: Recite Ayat al Kursi, Allah will protect you, your children, also protect your house rather even the houses which are near to yours [Imam Jalal ud-din Suyuti in Dur ul Munthur, (2/6)]
