Is it permissible to make Mus-hafs (copies of the Qur'an) on behalf of a deceased person and distribute them in Masjids (mosques)? Will the reward be given to the deceased, to me or to both? Who will have the greater reward?
If you are going to do this from your own money, it is permissible for you to do so and you will have the reward for your sincere deed. If this is done from the deceased's bequest, it is permissible to do so after taking the consent of the heirs. You and the deceased will have the reward for your deed; each one according to his sincerity. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
