Jumu3ah Reminder 2


Virtues of reciting Soorat al-Kahf:

عن أبي سعيد الخدري : أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : “من قرأ سورة الكهف في يوم الجمعة أضاء له من النور ما بينالجمعتين” . رواه الحاكم . وصححه الألباني في صحيح الترغيب 836

It was narrated from Aboo Sa3eed al-Khduri that the Prophet sallallaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on Friday, he will be illuminated with light between the two Fridays.” (1)


  وعن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم :“من قرأ سورة الكهف في يوم الجمعة سطع له نور من تحت قدمه إلى عنان السماء يضيء له يوم القيامة ، وغفر له ما بين   الجمعتين” –  الترغيب والترهيب  1 / 298

It was narrated that Ibn 3Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu3ah, 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.” (2)

عن أبي سعيد الخدري قال : ” من قرأ سورة الكهف ليلة الجمعة أضاء له من النور فيما بينه وبين البيت العتيق “. رواه الدارمي ( 3407 ) . والحديث : صححه الشيخ الألباني في ” صحيح الجامع ”  6471 .

From Abu Sa3eed al-Khudri, who said the Prophet sallallaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: “Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the night of Jumu3ah, will have a light that will stretch between him and the Ancient House (the Ka3bah).” (3)

Time for reciting Soorat al-Kahf on Friday

The soorah may be read during the night or the day of Jumu3ah.

The night of Jumu3ah starts from sunset on Thursday, and the day of Jumu3ah ends at sunset. Therefore the time for reading this soorah extends from sunset on Thursday to sunset on Friday. (4)

Jumu3ah Reminder:

Read Soorah Al-Kahf every Friday (until before Maghrib)
