Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org
Answer

Once Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) asked Ubayy in Ka’ab
(Radhiallaahu Anhu), ‘Do you know which is the greatest Aayat in the Qur’
aan?’ He replied, ‘Allah and His Rasul (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) knows
best.’ Thereafter, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) repeated the
question, so Sayyiduna Ubayy ibn Ka’ab (Radhiallaahu Anhu) replied, ‘Allaahu
laa ilaaha illaa huwal yahhul qayyoom.’ Then Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi
Wasallam) hit his chest (affectionately) and said, ‘May you be congratulated
on your knowledge.’ (Sahih Muslim)

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (Radhiallaahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Everything has a peak and the peak of
the Qur’aan is Surah Baqarah, and in it is the verse which is the leader of
all the verses in the Qur’aan.’ (Sunan Tirmidhi)

And in a narration of al-Mustadrak, the following words were added, ‘It is
not recited in any house except that the devil flees from it, it is Aayaatul
Kursi.’ (Mustadrak Haakim) see al-Targheeb vol.2 pg.370

Sayyiduna Abu Umaamah (Radhiallaahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Whoever recites Aayaatul Kursi after
every Salat, the only barrier between him and paradise will be death.’
(Sahih ibn Hibbaan)

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
