Quran Surah 18: Surah al-Kahf (The Cave)

This surah has 110 ayaat and it was revealed in Makkah. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) has said that whoever recites this surah will be protected from fitna (evil) for eight days. If a person recites the last verse of surah al-Kahf before sleeping at night, Allah (s.w.t.) creates a noor (light) from his sleeping place up to the Holy Ka'bah and in this light are angels who continually pray for the reciter until he wakes up.

It is narrated from Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (a.s.) that if a person wishes to wake up at a particular time, he should recite the last ayah of this surah and then make the intention that he will wake up at a certain time and he will wake up at that time. He (a.s.) also said that if a person recites this surah every Thursday night, he will die the death of a martyr. Keeping this surah (written) in the house becomes a means of protection from poverty and debts.

Ayaat 109-110 are also recommended to be recited after prayer
