Q: Respected Shaykh, I hope you will explain the ruling on reciting the Qur’an for the dead. Is
it permissible or not? How authentic are the Hadiths reported in this regard?
A: The act of reading the Qur’an for the dead has no legal foundation in the Shari‘ah (Islamic
law). It is permissible for a Muslim to read the Qur’an among living people in order for them to
benefit and reflect on the Book of Allah. However, we do not know any basis in the Shari‘ah
that sanctions reading the Qur’an for the dead at their grave, before their burial, or anywhere
to gift them the reward of reading.
Scholars have written many books on this issue; some scholars held it permissible and
encouraged Muslims to read the Qur’an completely many times for the dead, making it
analogous to giving Sadaqah (voluntary charity) on behalf of the dead. Other scholars said
that these matters are Tawqifiy (bound by a religious text and not amenable to personal
opinion), i.e. they are acts of worship that a Muslim is not permitted to offer except in the way
approved by the Shari‘ah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated: “Anyone who does an action which is
not in accordance with this matter of ours (our religion) will have it rejected.” We do not know any evidence on this
subject that indicates the permissibility of reading the Qur’an for the dead.
WHO ARE YOU SEEKING WISDOM FROM? ~NOT ALL WISDOM IS GOOD WISDOM~
Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
ٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّمَا ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَا لَعِبٌۭ وَلَهْوٌۭ وَزِينَةٌۭ وَتَفَاخُرٌۢ بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَكَاثُرٌۭ فِى ٱلْأَمْوَٰلِ وَٱلْأَوْلَـٰدِ ۖ كَمَثَلِ غَيْثٍ أَعْجَبَ ٱلْكُفَّارَ نَبَاتُهُۥ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ فَتَرَىٰهُ مُصْفَرًّۭا ثُمَّ يَكُونُ حُطَـٰمًۭا ۖ وَفِى ٱلْـَٔاخِرَةِ عَذَابٌۭ شَدِيدٌۭ وَمَغْفِرَةٌۭ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَرِضْوَٰنٌۭ ۚ وَمَا ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَآ إِلَّا مَتَـٰعُ ٱلْغُرُورِ
Ketahuilah, bahwa sesungguhnya kehidupan dunia ini hanyalah permainan dan suatu yang melalaikan, perhiasan dan bermegah-megah antara kamu serta berbangga-banggaan tentang banyaknya harta dan anak, seperti hujan yang tanam-tanamannya mengagumkan para petani; kemudian tanaman itu menjadi kering dan kamu lihat warnanya kuning kemudian menjadi hancur. Dan di akhirat (nanti) ada azab yang keras dan ampunan dari Allah serta keridhaan-Nya. Dan kehidupan dunia ini tidak lain hanyalah kesenangan yang menipu.

Its day 13 of our Daniel fast and I am delighted to be part of this great fast happening in DCC @dcclagos@dccisland .
Our Devotion today is teaching us who our God IS and how HE comes through for his own no matter the situation. HE came through for Daniel during his petition for God's people to reveal and interpret what's to happen ahead of time.
So as Sons and Daughters called into HIS light, let's come to God knowing HE will not leave or forsake us in times of plenty or in times of nothing and HE HIS a rewarder of those that delightly seek HIM.
Worry no more as HE will always come through for you.
