at-Tawwaaf and Completing the Qur'aan (by reciting it all) for the Dead
Question:

I sometimes make Tawaaf for one of my relatives or for my parents, or for my grandparents that have died, what is the ruling on this? And also, what is the ruling upon completing the Quraan for them (by reciting it)? May Allaah reward you with good.
Answer:

It is better that this (act) is left, because of the lack of evidence for it. However the charity has been legislated for you, for whom you love from your next of kin and other than them, if they were Muslims, and supplicating for them, making the Hajj and the Umrah for them. As for establishing the Prayer () for them, and making Tawaaf for them, reciting the Quraan for them, then it is better to abandon this because of the lack of evidence for it.

And some of the people of knowledge allow this by making analogy with charity and supplication, (as a) precaution this should be left.

And success is with Allaah.
