I want to ask if reciting the Koran on behalf of somebody who is deceased is something that I can give the reward and donate the reward to them.
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about this is a topic that has been debated for literally many, many centuries, for hundreds and hundreds of years, that would amount but all of them from the feet of Atlas, you know, and Gemma who are of a normative Islamic stance and creed, they have two different opinions. One opinion is that a solid so that you can transmit and that there can be a receiving of somebody receiving reward on behalf of a deed you perform in their name. And that only just simply requires that you make intention that this is I asked a lot to make a reward for them. Now we have clear evidence for this for particular acts of
worship, for making Hajj on behalf of someone and for fasting on behalf of someone and being charitable on behalf of someone. All of these are narrated from verifiable statements of the prophets life where he would answer it on behalf of people. The question now extends to things that weren't labeled by the prophets I send them and weren't asked of him. And just in general, things like can I recite the Quran and ask a lot to send the blessing of it to my deceased father or grandfather or my teacher and so on and so forth. One group of them and extensive group they believe that this is entirely acceptable. It's as if you're donating the reward to them while they're still
alive. Theoretically, as you're sitting there today, and I do recommend it, that you make do out for me and you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless me and that you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to deliver the reward if you were to give charity in my name, although I'm alive and well, and to maybe recycled on and say, Oh Allah, I wish that this is a reward that's given to my brother. Yeah, that this is something that's seen, even though I'm capable of doing it without you letting me know. It's an act of worship on my behalf, that you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless me and share in that reward with me. We can see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he did his photo
ban, he gave the reward of the autobahn on the day of read for the owner of His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who were unable to offer the autobahn. And that scene as evidenced by some the second camp in the second opinion, legitimate major scholars of Islam past and present, they hold the opinion that khulumani in the Mecca, sobre hain, everyone will only be you know, accountable for what they've earned, and only while only what you were produced in your life, and they hold evidence of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that when a person passes away, all that's left over in terms of their reward that they can continue to earn it is a sort of cartoon jatiya
that they gave a charity that continues to earn them blessing anyone, you untapped power away knowledge that they passed on that continues to be practiced, and well done slowly, or a child that left behind who were they raised up well to make up for them. The key and understanding this Hadeeth to the first camps opinion is that all of these are actions that the Prophet said that a person himself does for themselves, meaning that when I pass away, unless I've already done that for myself, it can't be done by somebody else for me. But there are other things that somebody else can do in my name that can be passed on to me, one of the most significant of them is every citation and
reading of the origin. I tend to agree that a solid lab is something that can be a source of reward for others. Allahu taala
