Surah Al-Kahf - Friday Recitations
  • Question:

    As we all know we should recite Surah Al-Kahf on Friday. Can we recite Surah Al-Kahf after Thursday i.e., Friday night before sleeping instead of on Friday itself?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    According to prophetic reports by Darami and Hakim, it is a sunnah to recite the entire Surah Kahf on Friday. The recitation can be completed in parts or in one sitting. To acquire the rewards and blessings of the sunnah practice, the time frame would be anytime between sunset of Thursday to sunset on Friday.

    Reciting it after sunset on Friday would be better than not reciting at all.

    And Allah knows best.
