‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr ibn Al-‘Aas heard the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) saying:
“It will be said to the companion of the Qur’aan: Read and elevate(up through the levels of the Paradise) and beautify your voice as you used to do when you were in the dunyaa! For verily, your position in the Paradise will be at the last verse you recite!”
Sunan At-Tirmithee #2914; Al-Albaanee authenticated it in Saheeh Sunan At-Tirmithee (3/164-165)]
Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) said:-
“Whoever reads Surah al-Kahf on the night of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will stretch between him and the Ancient House (the Ka’bah).”
(Narrated by al-Daarimi# 3407. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami, 6471)
“Whoever reads Surah Al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will shine from him from one Friday to the next.”
(Narrated by al-Haakim, 2/399; al-Bayhaqi, 3/249. It was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 6470)
Note:-The surah may be read during the night or the day of Jumu’ah. The night of Jumu’ah starts from sunset on Thursday, and the day of Jumu’ah ends at sunset. Therefore the time for reading this surah extends from sunset on Thursday to sunset on Friday.
From Mu’aadh bin al-Juhni, the Companion of the Messenger of Allaah – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, from the Prophet – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – who said:
“Whoever reads <<قُلۡ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ>> << Say, ‘He is Allaah, [Who is] One>> [Soorah Ikhlaas] until he finishes it ten times, then Allaah builds a Palace for him in Paradise as well as additional benefits.
‘Umar said: ‘Then we will have a lot of Palaces, O Messenger of Allaah!’
The Prophet – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – said: Allaah has more and what is better.” [Silsilah Ahadeeth as-Saheehah by Shaykh al-Albaani No.589]

From Aboo Hurairah – radiyallaahi ‘anhu – who said: Allaah’s Messenger – salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam – said:
<<Among the deeds and virtues whose reward will reach the Believer after his death are: knowledge that he taught and disseminated; a righteous son whom he left behind; a written copy of the Qur`aan which he left as a legacy; or a mosque that he built; or a house that he built for the passing traveller; or a canal which he dug and caused to flow; or charity which he gave from his property whilst he was alive and well, for which he will continue to receive reward after his death.>>
Reported by Ibn Maajah (no.242), Ibn Khuzaymah (4/121/2490), and al-Bayhaqee in Shu`abul-Eemaan (3/274/3448). Declared ‘hasan’ by Shaikh al-Albaanee in Saheehut- Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (no.77).
Uqbah Ibn Aamir (Radhi Allaahu Anhu) relates that Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) came out when we were in as-Suffah and said:
“Are there any of you who would wish to go every day to Buthaan or al-’Aeeq [i.e., the name of two ditches in al-Madeenah] in the early morning and return from it with two she-camels without incurring any sin or severing relations?” We [the companions] said: “We would indeed love that, O Messenger of Allah” He (Peace be upon him) said: “Then you should go to the mosque and acquire some knowledge, or recite two aayaat from the Book of Allaah, that would be better for you than two she-camels, and three aayaat are better than three she-camels, and four aayaat are better than four she-camels, and the same for a like number of camels” [Muslim 1/553]
‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud said: ‘Whoever reads ‘al-Mulk’ (chapter 67 of the Qur`an) every night, Allah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), we used to call it al-mani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allah, it is a chapter which – whoever recites it every night – has done very well.” [‘Sahih at-Targhib wat-Tarhib’ #1475]
The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said :
“Whoever recites Ayat Al-Kursiy after each obligatory prayer, then nothing stands in his way to Paradise except death.”
This hadeeth is reported by At-Tabaraani, ibn as-Sunni, ibn Hibbaan, and others. Ibn Hibbaan graded it as saheeh in his book As-Salaat. Al-Haythami said: “At-Tabaraani reported it in Al-Kabeer and Al-Awsat with different narrations, one of them is good.” Al-Haafith ibn Hajar said,“Its isnaad is saheeh…and ibnul Jawzee was inattentive when he reported it in his Mawdoo’aat (fabricated collection of ahaadeeth).” Shaykh al-Albaani authenticated it in As-Silsilah As-Saheehah (vol.2, no.972) and said: “Ibn Khatheer declared it as saheeh in his tafseer(exegesis).” He noted that Shaykh-ul-Islaam ibn Taymeeyah’s calssification of this hadeeth as weak, as in his Fatawaa (22:508), “Appears to be made at the stage when he was beginning to seek knowledge. In fact, his student Imaam ibnul Qayyim related that he (ibn Taymeeyah ) was reported to have said, “I never relinquished [to recite] it after each [obligatory] salaat.” After detailing the various reports regarding this hadeeth, ibnul Qayyim commented, “It has its basis and it is not mawdoo’ (fabricated).” [See ibnul Qayyim’s Zaadul Ma’aad (Beirut, Lebanon: Mu’assasatur-Risaalah (Checked by Shu’ayeb and ‘Abdul Qaadir al-Arna’oot), 2d, ed. 1418/1997)], pp. 293-294. …from : AayatulQursi – Uthaimeen – From Commentary on Imaam ibn Taymeeyah’s Sharhul ’Aqeedatil-Waasitiyyah
Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
“The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to his Companions:
‘Could any one of you not recite one third of the Qur’aan in one night?’
They found the idea too difficult, and said, ‘Who among us could do that, O Messenger of Allaah?’
He said, ‘Allaahu’l-ahad, al- samad [i.e., Soorat al-Ikhlaas] is one third of the Qur’aan.’” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 4628)
