What is the Benefit of reading Surah Kahf on Friday?

  As many Surahs of the Holy Quran, each letter has a great reward from Allah and multiplied by ten, as said by ِAllah in Surah Al An’am:

مَن جَاءَ بِالْحَسَنَةِ فَلَهُ عَشْرُ أَمْثَالِهَا ۖ وَمَن جَاءَ بِالسَّيِّئَةِ فَلَا يُجْزَىٰ إِلَّا مِثْلَهَا وَهُمْ

لَا يُظْلَمُونَ

Who has to recite it?

  If you are a Muslim, you have to recite it as much as possible. Men or women, travelers, or residents all have to recite it to get Allah’s satisfaction and win His reward. We can’t ignore God bless when He promised His servants to give them the reward if they can’t do what they have used to do. This means that if you are used to recite Surah Kahf, and couldn’t read it due to your illness, Allah will give you the full reward.  What a great Surah?!

  Reciting the Holy Quran is not limited to specific times, you can recite It at any time. There is a very important condition that must be present if you would like to recite the Holy Quran, you have to choose the time of Khushoo’.
