Reading Quran for the deceased

Also, about reading Quran for the deceased, and in Islamic law, there are no restrictions on reading the Qur’an.

One of the most effective ways for a Muslim to come closer to his Lord is to read the Qur’an.

Scholars agree that reading the Qur’an to a deceased person is allowed at the moment of death or afterward; in his house, at the mosque, at his graveside or any other location; and at the time of burial or after that.

Is it permissible to give a departed person the reward of reciting the Quran?

Is it permissible to gift the reward of one’s Qur’an recitation to a deceased person, and will such recitation help them?

Or, as others allege, is this an innovation (bid’ah) that contradicts mainstream Islam?

Unfortunately, this subject has sparked a lot of debate and heated debate among Muslims in recent years.

It is increasingly normal to see Muslims shunning other Muslims over the matter, expressing hostility against them, or even labeling them as deviants as a result!

However, Islam forbids such bigotry and intolerance, and the shari’ah does not sanction it.

An impartial examination of the topic indicates that classical jurists disagreed on:

Whether or not the benefits of Quranic recitation might be “donated” or “given” to the departed is known as isal al-thawab or ihda al-thawab.

One set of academics believes it can be donated and that the deceased would profit from it, whereas the other thinks it cannot.

The vast majority of jurists agree that such a gift reaches the departed and that they gain from it.

Any act of worship a person conducts, presenting its reward to a departed Muslim, the deceased would profit from it; God willing,’ Ibn Qudamah al-Maqdisi declared in his highly famous al-Mughni, typifying the favored position. Now, as for prayer, seeking pardon, and providing alms [on behalf of others], or those acts that can be performed on someone else’s behalf, I am not aware of any distinction in their permissibility.’
