17 Virtues of Surah Kahf on Friday
Friday is a glorious day. Proof of his glory, God predestined some great events on that day. And there are also some worship services devoted to the night and day, especially the implementation of the Friday prayers following the accompanying deeds.
Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam said,
إن من أفضل أيامكم يوم الجمعة فيه خلق آدم وفيه قبض وفيه النفخة وفيه الصعقة
“Surely among the most fateful days is on Friday, that day Adam was created and sacrificed, and on that same day shall be blown the trumpet and the death of all beings …” (Narrated by Abu Dawud, a Nasai , Ibn Majah, Ahmad, and al Hakim from hadith Aus bin Aus)
Narrated from Ibn Mardawaih from Abdullah Bin Mughaffal Mentioned That The House which was Recited Al-Khafi and Al Baqarah surah will not be Entered by Demons Throughout The Nights
Sunnah read Al-Kahf’s letter on Friday or Friday, and Friday night begins from the setting of the sun on Thursday. This opportunity ends until the sun sets on Friday.
Reading The Al-Kahf Surah on Friday will Obtain The Remission of Sins Between The Two Friday
In another narration from Abu Sa’id al-Khudri radhiyallahu ‘anhu, the Messenger of Allah said,
من قرأ سورة الكهف في يوم الجمعة أضآء له من النور ما بين الجمعتين
“Whoever reads the letter of Al-Kahf on Friday, it will be emitted light for him between two Jum’at.” (Narrated by Al-Hakim: 2/368 and Al-Bayhaqi: 3/249.
Ibn Hajar formulated this hadith in Takhrij al-Adzkar, “Hadith hasan.” He declared that this hadith is the most powerful hadith about the letter of Al-Kahf. Shaykh Al-Albani made it known in Saheeh al-Jami ‘, no. 6470)
That The Reward Prepared for Those who read the letter of Al-Kahf on Friday Night or in The Afternoon will be Given Light (Irradiated). And This Light is given on the Day of Judgment, Which Extends from Beneath The Soles of His Feet to The Heavens
And this shows the long distance of light given to him, as the word of God Ta’ala:
يوم ترى المؤمنين والمؤمنات يسعى نورهم بين أيديهم وبأيمانهم
“On the day when you see the believers men and women, while their light shines in the presence and on their right.” (Surah Al-Hadid: 12)
From Abu Sa’id al-Khudri radliyallahu ‘anhu, from the Prophet sallallaahu’ alaihi wasallam said:
من قرأ سورة الكهف ليلة الجمعة أضاء له من النور فيما بينه وبين البيت العتيق
“Whoever reads the letter of al-Kahf on Friday night, then emitted light for him as far as he andBaitul ‘atiq.” (Sunan Ad-Darimi, No. 3273. Also narrated al-Nasai and Al-Hakim and split by Al -Albani in Shahih al-Targhib wa al-Tarhib, No. 736)
- Reading Surah Al-Kahfi Protector Slander Dajjal
Prophet Muhammad SAW has explained that this Surah Al Kahfi will protect man from the fit of Dajjal. How to read and memorize some verses in this surah.
It is often said that the first ten verses and the last ten verses.
Imam Muslim narrated from hadith al-Nawas bin Sam’an long enough, which in the narration of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam said, “So whoever of you who find it (find the age of Dajjal) should he read it verses the beginning of the letter al-Kahf. ”
In another Muslim narration, from Abu Darda ‘radhiyallahu’ anhu, that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam said, “Whoever reads ten verses from the beginning of the letter of al-Kahf, then he is protected from the Dajjal.” That is from his riots.
The Muslim Imam said, the Shu’bah said, “From the end of the letter of al-Kahf.” And Hammam said, “From the beginning of the letter of al-Kahf.” (Sahih Muslim, Book of Salalah al-Mufassirin, Chapter: Fadhlu Surah al-Kahfi wa Aayah al-Kursi: 6 / 92-93).
Imam Nawawi said,
“The reason is, because at the beginning of Surat al-Kahf it contains or contains the miracles and signs of God’s greatness. So the contemplating person will not be deceived by the slander of Dajjal”.
Likewise in the end, that is the word of God:
أفحسب الذين كفروا أن يتخذوا عبادي من دوني أولياء
“Then do the disbelievers think that they can take my servants into a helper besides Me?” Qs. Al-Kahf: 102. (See Muslim Prophet of Imam Nawawi: 6/93)
Therefore, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) always beristi’dzah (asking for protection from Allah) from the four things in the prayer, namely: slander Religion (in ashabul kahf), Slander Harta (in the story of two garden owners), and Fitnah Powers (in the story of Zulkarnain king).
Therefore, in a narration it is recommended to recite Al-Kahf surah for those who meet the times of the ruling dajjal.
“Whosoever of you shall meet him (dajjal), let him recite the opening verses of Al-Kahf to him, for that reading protects you from his slander.” (Narrated by Abu Daud). (anj / R02)ads
2. Lighted Between Himself and The Kaaba
As Muslims, of course we all want to go Hajj. But in fact, not everyone can be lucky to set foot in Mecca and dealing with the Kaaba. However, the Prophet Muhammad once narrated that whoever reads al-Kahf’s letter on Friday, will be illuminated by the light between himself and the Kaaba.
3. Forgiven His Sin
Imam Mardawaih narrated from Ibn Umar, “Whoever reads the Surah al-Kahf on Friday then there will be a light shining from the soles of his feet to the sky that will shine on the Day of Judgment. And his sins will be forgiven between the two Fridays. ”
“Whoever reads Al-Kahf surah on Friday, then he will be illuminated with light between him and Baitul ‘Atiq.” Al-Hasan bin Ali RA always read it on every Friday night.
4. His Home Will Not Be Entered by Satan
Ibn Mardawaih narrated from Abdullah ibn Mughaffal, “The house recited in it Al-Kahf or Al-Baqarah surah will not be entered by Satan throughout the night.”
The imams said the required read Al-Kahfi surah on Friday and evening. They also say, it is recommended to repeat it.
Ibn Qudamah in Al-Mughni says,
“Being recited reading Al-Kahf’s letter on Friday.”
5. Emitted Light between Two Friday
In other narrations, still from Abu Sa’id al-Khudri,
“Whoever reads the letter of Al-Kahf on Friday, it will be emitted light for him between two Jum’at.”
(Narrated by Al-Hakim: 2/368 and Al-Baihaqi: 3/249 Imam Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalani commented on this hadith in Takhrij al-Adzkar, “Hadith hasan.” He stated that this hadeeth is the strongest hadith concerning Al-Kahf’s letter.)
6. Illuminate on The Day of Judgment
Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said:
“Whoever reads Al-Kahf’s letter on Friday, it will radiate light from under his feet to the sky, will illuminate it on the Day of Judgment, and forgiven his sin between two Friday.”
7. We Will Get The Pardon From Allah SWT
Every man must not escape from sin and err. That is the way of the devil in trapping people to sin to God so that they will later find friends in Hell. Na’udzubillah. For this reason, man must always repent for God to forgive our sins and not to put them to Hell, as bad as a return in the hereafter.
One of the best times when asking forgiveness of God is on Friday, with a sincere prophecy of sincerity, and reciting Surat Al Kahf. In a narration from Abu Sa’id al-Khudri ra., From Ibn Umar ra.,
“Rasulullah SAW said, ‘Whoever reads Al-Kahf’s letter on Friday will light the light from under his feet to the sky, will illuminate it on the Day of Judgment, and be forgiven of his sin between two friday.”
8. Gain The Reward Doubled
Especially for reading Al Quran, reward will be given on each letter. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said:
“Whoever reads one letter from the Book of Allah, then he will get one good, and one good will be doubled up to ten times. I do not say one letter, but one letter alif, one letter, one-lettered mimic (HR.Tirmidhi)
9. Being Intercede
When in the hereafter humans need intercession or help. This intercession can come from human beings such as the Prophet Muhammad, or it can be from a human righteous deed like reading Al-Quran. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said,
“read by you Qur’an, because the Qur’an will be interceded for the reader on the Day of Resurrection.”
10. Affirming The Faith
Surat al-Kahf contains stories in it. Among the stories of ashabul Kahf, the story of the owner of two gardens, the story of Prophet Moses with the prophet Khidr, and the story of the king of Dhu al-Karnain. The story of Kahf’s ashabul is about the young men who defend the faith and must go into seclusion in the cave.
The story of Prophet Moses with Prophet Khidr tells the story of Moses who studied on the believer of the Prophet Khidr who often “crossed” with the thought of the Prophet Moses. But it turns out that Prophet Khidr has knowledge that contains wisdom that Moses did not possess.
The story of Dzulkarnain tells of a king who was given great power and ability by God. Yet he remains a human being who believes, although it may be that his power is make it forget himself.
For people who read al-Kahf’s letter by pervading the meaning contained in it, will get wisdom from the stories. Imanpun strengthened and stronger.
11. With The Angels
Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said:
“Whoever reads al-Quran fluently will be with the noble angel and always obey Allah, as for those who recite the Qur’an with a brick stirred because of the difficulty of reading then he will get the reward of two rewards.”
12. Getting Calm
Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) explained,
“not a group gathered in the mosque to read and study the Koran except to be revealed to them tranquility and grace, shaded by angels, and Allah mention it in the presence of angels. (Muslim)”
13. Getting The Best Gift
Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said in the hadith qudsi, that Allah says,
“Who is preoccupied with the Quran and recites from asking me, I will give the best of grace, the virtue of kalamullah compared to the other kalam as Allah’s virtue than creatures.” Tirmidhi)
14. Radiated From Beneath Its Light to The Sky
Ibn Umar narrated that the Messenger of Allah said,
“Whoever reads the letter of al-Kahf on Friday, the light will be emitted from under his feet to the sky, with which he will illuminate it on the Day of Resurrection … (al-Mundhiri explains that this hadith is a la ba’sa bihi or no problem.)
This is corroborated by the word of God:
“On the day when you see the believers who are male and female, while the shining light illuminates in front and right side of them. (said to them): “Today there is good tidings for you, the heaven beneath which flows rivers, which you are eternal in it, that is a great victory” (Surat al-Hadiid: 12)
This light will someday be useful in the afterlife. When humans do need light from God.
