THE VIRTUES OF READING SURAT AL-KAHF
Today is the holy day of Jum’ah. One Jum’ah and one week of Ramadan are over.
Last Jum’ah was Sha’ban. And this time it fell on Ramadan. A week has passed, and today
is the 7th of Ramadan. Holy Ramadan is passing very quickly.
Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla granted as a present the day of Jum’ah to the Ummah of our
Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم with its blessings. Its virtues are very great. It has certain duties. Sunnah and Mustahabb were given by Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla to us to do them in order to reach
more virtues and light. They were given as a present. One of them is Surat al-Kahf. Our
Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم says that whoever reads it on Friday, Allah جل جلاله gives him light from that Friday until the next Friday as much as the distance from the East to the West. The light cannot be bought; these things should be done to have it. Therefore, whoever reads Surat
al-Kahf every Friday attains great Thawab and virtues, both physically and spiritually.
Also, whoever reads the first and the last [ten] Ayat of Surat al-Kahf will be protected from the evil of Dajjal, says our Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم .He will be protected from his
Fitnah. The appearance of Dajjal is near, as it is the end of times already. That is why we
should read it for sure. If not all of it, read a couple of Ayat [from the beginning] and read
the last [ten] Ayat. Read the last [ten] Ayat as well so that you are protected from this evil
and Fitnah. Read more here
