Can we give Sadaqah for the reward to benefit the deceased?

Home / Family / Can we give Sadaqah for the reward to benefit the deceased?

Question:

If someone dies in the family, can the children or spouse give sadaqa or charity with the intention of benefiting the deceased with the reward of that act?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

There are Scholars who said yes, a person can give sadaqah and give the reward to the dead, specially if the sons and daughters of the deceased do this.

Yet, Shaikh Ibn Al-Uthaymin says the best act to benefit the dead person is to make dua for him. This is according to the authentic hadith saying that the person’s deeds are cut off at death except of three cases, one of them is the dua of his son or daughter.
