Virtues of Surah Al-Kahf

  • Protection from the trial of the Dajjaal.

The messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said :

من حفظ عشر آيات من أول سورة الكهف عصم من الدجال و في رواية – من آخر سورة الكهف

” Whoever memorizes the first 10 verses of Surah Al-Kahf, he will be protected from the fitnah of the dajjaal” and in another narration – “… the last 10 verses of Surah Al-Kahf… “

Sahih Muslim (809)


  • A light on the Day of Judgement

He صلى الله عليه وسلم also said :

من قر أ سورة الكهف كما أنزلت كانت له نور ا يوم القيامة، من مقامه إلى مكة

“Whoever recited Surah Al-Kahf in the manner in which it was revealed, it will serve for him as a light on the Day of Judgement, from his standing place to Makkah”

Silsilah Al-Hadeeth As-saheehah (2651)


  • A light between himself and The Ancient House (Makkah)

The prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said :

من قرأ سورة الكهف ليلة الجمعة، أضاء له من النور ما بينه و بين البيت العتيق

“Whoever recites Surah Al-Kahf on the night of Friday, he will be illuminated with a light between him and The Ancient House (Makkah)”

Saheeh At-Targheeb wa Tarheeb (736)


  • A light between the two Fridays

The prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said :

من قرأ سورة الكهف في يوم الجمعة أضاء له من النور ما بين الجمعتين

“Whoever recites Surah Al-Kahf on the day of Friday will be illuminated with a light between the two Fridays (From one Friday to the next)”

Saheeh At-Targheeb wa Tarheeb (736)
