Description :

Do the Deceased Benefit from the Recitation of the Qur'an ? .... In the present era, we are faced with discussions on this subject which have left the masses confused.


---[1]. Is it permissible to read Qur'an for the ones who passed away? Just saying this because there were rumours that we shouldn't read it for the ones that have passed away because there just simply dead and the doors of Tawba are closed for them.

---[2]. Reciting Qur'an and doing dhikr with an intention that the rewards of that recitation goes to the dead person (Muslim relative or friend who is dead).. I am doubtful about this act. I feel it is bid'ah. Kindly help me understand this by quoting Sahih hadiths or Qur'anic verses.


This scholarly book is the English translation of an Arabic leaflet published and distributed recently in the Middle East. With great clarity and detail, the leaflet proves that Qur’anic recitation at the grave is not only allowed in Islamic Shari’ah, but of great benefit to the deceased. The evidence presented to prove this issue has been derived from the Qur’an and Sunnah, coupled with the opinions of the renowned scholars, such as the four great Imams (Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Shafi’i, Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal and Imam Malik, may Allah be pleased with them). It also includes the opinion of Ibn Taymiyya, who supports the practice of Qur’anic recitation at the grave.

Interestingly, the leaflet was sponsored and published by the Government of United Arab Emirates. The Arab Peninsula is known as the stronghold for Salafi (neo-Wahhabi) beliefs. However, this leaflet vehemently refutes one of their key beliefs; that once a Muslim dies, the action of others ceases to benefit him.

We hope this publication provides peace of mind to our fellow Muslims, and that it answers any questions they had on the issue.
