Law: To convey Esaal-e-Sawaab, means to convey the reward of the recitation of the Qur’an-e-Majeed, Durood Shareef 1 , Kalma-e-Tayyibah 2 or the reward of any other virtuous deed is permissible. One may convey the reward of either Ibaadat-eMaaliya 3 , or Ibaadat-e-Badaniyah 4 , be it Fard of Nafil, the reward for all of this can be conveyed to any other. The conveying of reward by the living benefits the deceased. The explanation with regards to this is mentioned in the Books of Fiqh 5 and Aqaa’id 6 . It has been discussed in Hidaya and Sharah Aqaa’id Nasfiya. To refer to this as Bid’at is to be obstinate. It is also proven to be permissible from the Hadith. When the mother of Hazrat Sa’ad radi allahu anhu passed away, he said, Ya Rasool’Allah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam ! The mother of Sa’ad (i.e. my mother) has passed away. Which Sadqa is most virtuous? He Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said, ‘Water’. He had a well dug and said; this well is for Umm-e-Sa’ad  ﺭﺿﻰ ﺍﷲ ﺗﻌﺎﱃ ﻋﻨﻬﺎ . From this it is evident that the deceased receives reward through the deeds of the living, and they attain benefit through this.

Now, as for the matter of specifying (particular days etc) such as three days, or the forty days, then (it must be noted) that these are neither specifications that are fixed by the Shariah and nor are they regarded as being fixed to be specific by the Shariah. No one knows (or says) that the reward will only be received (if sent) on this day or that it will not be received if it is conveyed on any other day. This is simply a customary and commonly known practice which has been performed by the people, for the sake of expediency. Actually, the recitation of the Qur’an and other

1. Durood Shareef refers to sending blessings and salutation upon Rasoolullah Sallallahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam  ‘Allahum’ma Sal’le alaa Sayyidina Wa Maulana Muhammadiw Wa alaa Aali Sayyidina Muhammadiw Wa Ashabihi Wa Baarik Wa Sal’lim’
2. Kalma-e-Tayyibah refers to the first Kalima being ‘Laa ilaaha il’lal laahu Muhammadur Rasoolullah
3. Ibaadat-e-Maaliya refers to that which is done by spending in the way of Allah, such as Zakaat etc.
4. Ibaadat-e-Badaniyah refers to that Ibaadat which is done physically, such as Namaaz etc.
5. Books of Fiqh, meaning Books of Jurisprudence
6. Aqaa’id refers to ones beliefs. We should all be Sunni Sahihul Aqida as this is the only way and correct way.

virtuous deeds are commenced immediately after the person passes away. This continues for many days at the homes of some people. So, with this occurring, what for is it said that people regard it impermissible to convey reward on  any other day except the specified days? This is merely a baseless blame against the Muslims and is a futile attempt to deprive the deceased from receiving reward and blessings conveyed to them by the living. Now, that we have explained the actual principles, the minor details in this regard can be ascertained from these principles.  ‘Sawm’, in other words the 3rd day (or three day Faateha) is that which is done on the third day after the person has passed away. (In this), The recitation of the Qur’an-eMajeed and the Kalima Shareef takes place, and the reward of this is conveyed to the deceased, and gram, puffed sugar candy or sweetmeats are distributed amongst children and the needy, and food is prepared and fed to the poor and the needy, or it is sent to their homes. These are all permissible and  virtuous. Thereafter, they also cook food on Thursdays according to their capacity and have it given or fed to the poor. Then on the fortieth day (similarly) they feed, and they again convey reward at six months and thereafter, the annual customary conveying of reward takes place. All these are branches of Esaal-e-Sawaab. All of them fall within the same category. It is however necessary that all of this should be done with a pure intention. It should not be done for pomp and show, otherwise there will be no reward for it and it will not be regarded as Esaal-e-Sawaab. Some people give invitations to their elders and close relatives during such times. This is not a time to give invitations, but it is a time to feed the poor and the needy, which will benefit the deceased. Similarly, Faateha 1 is read over Halwa 2 . To cook this Halwa is also permissible and to read the Faateha over it is also included in the category of Esaal-e-Sawaab. In certain places, during the month of Rajab, Surah Mulk is recited forty times and then blessed over ‘Rotis’ or dry dates and these are then distributed, whilst the reward of it is conveyed to the deceased. This is also permissible. Read the rest of this entry »
