In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Are Deeds & Rewards Transferable
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

To understand the concept of Deed and Rewards we need to reflect on the Quraan and Authentic Hadeeth.

The best of best among you are those who learn and teach the Quraan, (Ref: Sahee Al-Buhkhari, Book-61, Hadeeth 545-546).

Let us see what the Quraan (word of Allah and book of guidance for the mankind) says about Deeds and Rewards:

Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) has no right to change/amend or deviate from the Quraan, (Ref: Al_Quraan_010:015, 018:027). So, any Hadeeth which contradicts the Quraan cannot be Hadeeth at all and must be deleted / removed from all the Books of Hadeeths.

For each of your actions, including the Hajj or Reciting the Quraan etc., you will get reward of what you have done, and surely DEEDS of your loved ones or others will NOT save you. (Selected References: Al_Quraan_003.030, 003.185, 006.164, 014.051, 016.111, 018.047-049, 020.015-016, 031.033, 036.054, 039.069-070, 040.017, 044.041, 045.028, 060.003, 070.010-015, 075.13, 080.034-037, 082.005, 099.007-008).

Although only one verse from the Quraan is enough, BUT when references are a lot then we need to correct our beliefs according to the Quraan immediately and not reverse.

In simple terms, Rewards of any Deeds, e.g. the Hajj or Reciting the Quraan or Salaat etc. are not Transferable. You will get rewards of what you have done not your loved ones or others.

Do they not then reflect on the Quraan? No, on their hearts there are locks. (Al_Quraan_047.024)

None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah, BUT those who Disbelieve... (Al_Quraan_040.004)

In which Hadeeth, other than this (Hadeeth of Allah), do they believe? (Al_Quran_077.050)

The Best Way to Get Allah’s Mercy:

You can get Allah’s Mercy on practically following the commandments of Allah.

And when the Quran is recited, then listen to it and remain silent, that mercy may be shown to you. And remember your Lord within yourself humbly and fearing and in a voice not loud in the morning and the evening and be not of the heedless ones. (Al_Quraan_007:204-205)

We made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn? (Al_Quraan_054:017, 022, 032, 040)

It is not righteousness (only) that you turn your faces towards the East and the West (in Prayer/Salaah, Hajj & Umrah etc.), but (best) righteousness is this that one should believe in Allah and the last day and the angels and the Book and the prophets, and give away wealth out of love for Him to the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and the beggars and for (the emancipation of) the captives, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate; and the performers of their promise when they make a promise, and the patient in distress and affliction and in time of conflicts-- these are they who are true (to themselves) and these are they who guard (against evil), (Al_Quraan_002:177).

Remember: Prophet Nooh (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) couldn’t save his own son. Prophet Ibrahim (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) could not save his own father. Prophet Lut (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) couldn’t save his own wife. Hazrat Asya couldn’t save his own husband Firoon.

The Quraan is crystal clear. Deeds are NOT transferable, whether reciting the Quraan or asking someone else to recite the Quraan or performing Hajj on behalf of others is NOT transferable. Neither Prophet Muhammad performed this action and nor any of Sahabas. Do not waste your money on dead, rather invest that on saving lives of living people regardless of any discrimination.

Keep yourself far away from Halwa Manda Mullas. They are looking into your pocket by fooling you. They are BIG cheater.

If Quraan cannot convince you nothing will, open your heart towards Allah, because to him will you return and if you haven't gone through the manual (the Quraan) he has sent you and understood it properly, for sure Allah will not like it. Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).

ISLAAM IS A COMPLETE DEEN, NO COMPULSION, NO DISCRIMINATION & NO NEED FOR OVER-RESEARCH TO EXPLOIT IT: (Ref: Al_Quraan.002:256 / 003:030 / 005:003 / 022:078 / 027:001-002 / 049:013)
