A: Virtue has been mentioned in the Hadith for the one who recites it on any night, however specific mention has been made for the one who recites it on a Thursday night. The Ahaadith are mentioned below.

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم من قرأ حم الدخان في ليلة أصبح يستغفر له سبعون ألف ملك (ترمذي #2888)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: Whoever recites Surah Dukhaan in the night, he wakes up in the morning in the condition that seventy thousand angels beg forgiveness on his behalf.”

عن أبي هريرة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من قرأ سورة الدخان في ليلة جمعة أصبح مغفورا له (بيهقي في شعب الإيمان #2247)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: Whoever recites Surah Dukhaan on Friday night, all his (minor) sins will be forgiven by the morning.

عن أبي أمامة قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم من قرأ حم الدخان في ليلة جمعة أو يوم جمعة بنى الله له بيتا في الجنة (المعجم الكبير #8026)

Hazrat Abu Umamah (Radiyallahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: Anyone who recites Surah Dukhaan on Friday, in the night or in the day, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise.

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