Objective of the present investigation is intended to study the MHD Casson fluids flow through an exponentially stretching surface. This free convective flow is in­vestigated in thermally stratified porous medium. Also viscosity along with thermal conductivity is varying with temperature. With the exponential decay for the inter­nal heat generation in the region and buoyancy force, the natural-convection is induced. Then the transformed set of equations of the flow after applying suitable similarity solutions were encountered by Shooting Technique in conjunction with the fourth ordered Runge-Kutta method. Outputs illustrates that with increased viscosity parameter an increasing velocity profile is noticed but a decrement is observed for temperature field in entire domain and near the wall for temperature gradient profile. Also with increased Casson fluids parameter decreasing velocity profile is noticed but an increment is observed for temperature field in entire do­main and for temperature gradient profile near the wall.
