Benefits Of Reciting Surah Al Kahf On Friday

Virtues and Benefits of Reciting Surah Al Kahf on Friday
Surah al Kahf is the 18th Surah of Qur’an and it tells the story of the believers in ancient time who when received the message of Truth accepted it. However, they were to face retaliation from the society they lived in and hence they flee from the city and found protection in a cave where Allah Almighty gave them sleep (metaphorically) that lasted for centuries and till then their whole city had converted into believers. This Surah gives the message that those who believe in Allah and ask for protection from Him, He gives them the best protection the likes of which the world has never seen.
The Surah also comes with a variety of virtues as described in the hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):

Whoever reads Surah al Kahf on the day of Jummah will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next. (al-Jaami)

One who memorized the first ten verses of Surah al Kahf will be secure against the Dajjal (Anti-Christ). (Muslim)

Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah (Friday), a light will shine for him from beneath his feet to the clouds of the sky, which will shine for him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will be forgiven (his sins) between the two Fridays. [Al-Mundhiri رحمة اللہ علیه said, this was narrated by Abu Bakr ibn Mardawayh رحمة اللہ علیه in his Tafseer, with an isnaad with which there was nothing wrong]

Al-Mannaawi also said: “It is recommended to read it during the day or night of Jumu’ah, as al-Shaafa’i (rahmatullahi alaih) stated.” (Fayd al-Qadeer, 6/198)
