Reciting Surah Kahf on the eve of Friday

Q: I have been reading Surah Kahaf on the eve of Friday (ie. before the time of Fajr). However I have been informed that Surah Kahaf should be read after sunrise on a Friday. Is this correct and is there any Hadith to substantiate this?

A: It can be recited on the eve of Friday after sunset or on the day of Friday.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
