A means for redeeming the deceased from Hellfire

A 5: As for reciting the Noble Qur'an in full or in part and dedicating its reward for the deceased, there is no evidence to indicate its benefit to the deceased. Thus, this habit should be abandoned and what authentically was proven to have been done by the Prophet Muhammad, i.e., giving Sadaqah (voluntary charity) on behalf of the dead, supplicating to Allah for him, and performing Hajj (pilgrimage) and `Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) on his behalf, would be observed.May Allah grant us success. May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and his Companions!
