Yes! One who dies on Friday or its night he is protected from the punishment of grave:

عن عبد اللہ بن عمرو قال: قال رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم: ما من مسلم یموت یوم الجمعۃ أو لیلۃ الجمعۃ إلا وقاہ اللہ فتنۃ القبر، رواہ أحمد (مشكوة 121)

This Hadith has been narrated with other sources in other books, the details can be seen in: Mirqatul Masabeeh, Sharh of Mishkat.
