Description :

Fateha : A Salvation for the Dead

It is permissable and it is made clear from the 'Qur'an al kareem' and Ahadith that to recite surah's, to give in charity and to do good acts for the deceased does indeed benefit them. It is in Ahadith that when a person prays for another Muslim brother, that prayer is accepted. This is because there is an Angel over the head of every person and when a person prays for the betterment of another that Angel says 'Aameen' and prays that he also be rewarded accordingly. It is obvious that du'a is the essence behind prayers. Therefore, it is necessary for Muslims to pray for their fellow Muslims which benefits them both, in this world and the Hereafter.  

''And those who came after them (the Mujahir and the Ansar) say: ''O' Allah! Forgive us and our deceased brothers who came before us.'' - (Al Qur'an, 28 : 4)    

The Most Beloved Prophet, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, has stated :  '' To offer prayers, ask forgiveness of parents, fulfil any promises that they had made, treat well those who were related through them, respect and honour their freinds are included in service to the parents after their death.''  - (Abu Daud)

The followers of Wahhabi/Deobandi/Tablighi sects do not believe in saying any Du'a after Janazah Prayers, nor believe in saying Du'a after a burial nor in doing Khatam Shareef. For them when a person dies, their connection with the deceased is dead too.
