Will the one reciting the Qur’an for the deceased also receive reward


Will the reciter also receive the reward of the Qur’an whose reward he blesses to others? Zaid says that once you have sent the reward of it, nothing shall remain with you. Is this statement of his correct?


Zaid is incorrect; his judgement is based according to the affairs of this world where if you give someone something, it no longer remains with you. However, those things related to the hereafter and the unseen realm cannot be judged in such a manner. It has been mentioned in an authenticated Hadith that whosoever performs Hajj on behalf of his parents, then their souls are rejoiced, they feel peace and happiness and he shall be written as an obedient child of theirs. Both will receive the reward of a complete Hajj and there shall be no deduction from his reward.

The example of this in this world is sacred knowledge; however much you disseminate it to others, it does not decrease from you; in fact, it increases.

And Allah ﷻ knows best
