Jumua Surahs

Surah Zilzaal
Surah A'ala
Surah Dukhaan
Surah Kahf

Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbas( R.A.) reports that Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam)said:
The one who performs 2 rakaats( Nafl salaat) on the eve of Jumua (ie. Thursday evening) after the Maghrib salaat, and in each rakaat he reads Surah Faatiha once & Surah Zilzaal, 15 times, Allah will make easy for him the Sakaraat-ul-maut(pangs of death); and Allah will protect him from the punishment of the grave;and Allah will render easy for him,the Crossing of the Siraat( bridge across Jahannam) on the Day of Qiyaamah. (ASBAHAANI, SUYUTI, KANZUL-UMMAH )

Once a Sahaabi(R.A.) came to Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam)and said:
O Rasulullah, Recite to me such a Surah of the Quraan which is brief ,concise and which is comprehensive, which I can read with regularity. Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) read to him Surah Zilzaal and made him memorize it.After completing it this person said:
I take an oath by the Pure Being who has made you Rasul and sent you, I will never read more than this. Thereafter this person went away. Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) after hearing this said twice, This helpless person has attained success. This helpless person has attained success.

With regard to the 2 rakaats of Nafl after the 3 Witr of Esha Salaat:
Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, that whoever recites Surah Zilzaal in the 1st rakaat and Surah Kaafiroon in the 2nd rakaat, Allah Taala will register the reward of the entire nights worship in the record-book of that Muslim.

By reading it 4 times, it is equivalent to the Sawaab of reading 1 Quraan.


On the eve of Jumua( ie. Thursday night) read ANY surah from the Musabbihat , the shortest being Surah Aalaa.
Musabbihat,are surahs which begin with the words Sabb-baha.
They are Surahs Israa(15th para), Hadeed(27th para), Hashr,Saff, Jumuah, Tagabun(28th para), and Surah Aalaa(30th para).

It was also the Noble habit of Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) that before going to sleep,he recited the Musabbihat.

It was also the Sunnah of Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) to recite Surah Aalaa in the following salaats:
1st rakaat of Witr of Esha Salaat
2nd rakaat of Eid-ul-Adha & Eid-ul-Fitr
2nd rakaat of Jumuah Salaat.


Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) had said:
Whoever recites Surah Dukhaan on the night of Jumua( ie. Thursday night) 70 thousand Malaaikah ask for forgiveness for that person until the morning. Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said :
The one who reads Surah Dukhaan on the eve of Jumua(ie. Thursday night), or the day of Jumua,Allah will build a home for him in Jannah. (TABARAANI,ASBAHAANI)

Abu Raafea(R.A.) Says that a person who reads Surah Dukhaan on the eve of Jumua,his sins will be pardoned, and he will be honoured to marry the Hur(woman of Jannah). (DAARIMI)


To be read every Jumua; either during the eve(ie. Thursday night) or the day of Jumua( Friday).
Abu Saeed Khudri(R.A.) reports that Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said that the person who reads Surah Kahf on the eve of Jumua( ie. Thursday night), a Noor is illuminated between him, and the Kaaba. (DAARIMI)

In another narration,it has come that the person who reads Surah Kahf as it was revealed(ie. reads it correctly) , then between his place & Makkah ,a shining light is created for him.

Abu Saeed Khudri(R.A.) reports that Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said,The person who reads Surah Kahf on the Day of Jumua, Allah will create a Noor for him (which will remain with him) between the 2 Jumuahs.

It shall become a Noor(light) for the reciter which shall stretch from the earth upto the Heavens.

On the Day of Qiyaamah, this Surah will be a shining Light for its reader.

All the minor sins commited since the previous Friday are forgiven.

One shall be protected from all fitnas(trials) for eight days.

The person who always reads the last 10 ayaats of Surah Kahf, will be protected from Dajjaal,if he appears during his lifetime.In another narration, the person who memorised the first 10 Ayaats of Surah Kahf,will be saved from the evils of Dajjaal.In yet another narration. It appears the person who reads the first 3 ayaats will also be saved from the evils of Dajjaal.

It has come in Naqsh-e- Sulaimani, if a person is in heavy debts;one should recite Surah Kahf thrice on Friday, Insha-Allah, one will get rid of the burden of debt.

In short this Surah, is abundant Noor(Light) for its reciter on the Day of Jumua, till the next Jumua and on the Day of Qiyaamah.
Insha-Allah, we should grasp this Noor by regularly reciting it on Fridays.
