*Virtues of reciting 'Surah al-Kahf' on Fridays*- {Jumu'ah-Reminder}

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.



Virtues of reciting Surah al-Kahf


We are encouraged to recite/read Surah Kahf on Fridays.

This is something proven from the Sunnah

of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

There are saheeh ahaadeeth from the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)

concerning the virtues of reciting Surah al-Kahf

during the day or night of Jumu'ah (Friday).


 Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri

(May Allah be pleased with him)said:-

"Whoever reads Surah al-Kahf

on the night of Jumu'ah,

will have a light that will stretch

between him and the Ancient House

(the Ka'bah)."

Source:-(Narrated by al-Daarimi# 3407.

This hadeeth was classed as Saheeh

by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami, 6471)


"Whoever reads Surah Al-Kahf

on the day of Jumu'ah,

will have a light that will shine from him

from one Friday to the next."


(Narrated by al-Haakim, 2/399; al-Bayhaqi, 3/249.

It was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani

in Saheeh al-Jaami', 6470)


Note:-The surah may be read

during the night or the day of Jumu'ah.

The night of Jumu'ah starts from sunset on Thursday,

and the day of Jumu'ah ends at sunset.

Therefore the time for reading this surah extends

from sunset on Thursday to sunset on Friday.
