What are the benefits of reading this surah on Friday?
Let’s look at two benefits:
The first benefit of reading Surah Kahaf is that the one who recites this Surah on Jumu’ah (Friday), receives a special light from Allah Ta’ala which is placed in his heart. This special light remains shining until the next Friday!
To understand this light, let us take an example. It is dark and you need help, just then someone gives you a torch. What will this do? This torch will give you light and guide you towards safety and with this, it will save you from falling and hurting yourself.
The same is true for this special light which Allah Ta’ala places in our hearts. It acts like a torch and guides us towards doing good actions until the next Friday.
So let’s read Surah Kahaf and get this light!
The second benefit of reading Surah Kahaf is that the reciter will be saved from the fitnah (trial) of Dajjal.
This test will be so difficult for every person that very few will be able to save their Iman. However, the person who reads Surah Kahaf every Friday will have no problems.
Think of it as a shield, if you have a big strong shield, no matter what someone throws at you, you will stand protected and safe.
Like this, Surah Kahaf will be your shield and no matter what false beliefs and lies Dajjal throws at you to fool you to leave Islam, you will stand strong and protected by this shield Insha’Allah.
So read Surah Kahaf every Friday no matter what!
