Abud-Darda' (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "
commits to memory the first ten Ayat of the Surat Al-Kahf, will be protected from (the trial of) Ad-Dajjal
In another narration, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "
(Whoever commits to memory) the last ten Ayat of
Surat Al-Kahf, he will be protected from (the trial of) Ad-Dajjal (Antichrist).
Ad-Dajjal will appear sometime before Yaum-ul-Qiyamah. Allah, the Almighty will give him some
supernatural powers the manifestation of which will shake the faith of many people. For this reason, this will be a
serious trial. All Prophets warned their people against him. Our Prophet (PBUH) also warned us against him and
ordered us to guard ourselves from it and strictly advised us to seek Refuge of Allah against it. This Hadith tells us
the way to save ourselves from Ad-Dajjal. The recitation of the first or the last ten Ayat of Surat Al-Kahf, in the
morning and evening, is very useful for this purpose. Sheikh Al-Albani has, however, regarded the last ten Ayat
probably and the first ten Ayat surely effective against this mischief.

Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: While Jibril (Gabriel) was sitting with the Messenger
of Allah (PBUH), he heard a sound above him. He lifted his head, and said:
"This is a gate which has been opened in
heaven today. It was never opened before
.'' Then an angel descended through it, he said: "
This is an angel who has
come down to earth. He never came down before
.'' He sent greetings and said: "Rejoice with two lights given to you.
Such lights were not given to any Prophet before you. These (lights) are: Fatihah-til-Kitab (Surat Al-Fatihah), and
the concluding Ayat of Surat Al-Baqarah. You will never recite a word from them without being given the blessings
it contain
This Hadith tells the excellence of the last Ayat of Surat Al-Baqarah. (That is from Amanar-Rasul to
the end of the Surah). Any one who recites these Ayat with a sincere heart will receive guidance, forgiveness and
bliss in this life and in the Hereafter
