Isaal-e-Sawab for the Deceased Relatives
Dear brother and Sisters in islam
Recently i went to listen to someone who was giving lectures on how to convey Isale sawab to our dead relatives. Since then i am in a great confusion, because i learned there that one could give sadaqa, perform ummra, hajj and ask for forgiveness for one's relative who has departed from this world as per prophetic traditions, however one cannot read Quaran with the intention of conveying that sawad to death relative, even though one is reading it individually nor can one perform nafil namaz with the intention of conveying that reward to one's dead relatives.
Well my aunt who was very close to me died and everyday i do read quaran with the intention of conveying that sawab to her, I want to know whether this is the right method or whether what i am doing is wrong.
Well i know that giving sadaqa and hajj and ummra is permissible as per authetic hadith, but what if somebody is poor and cannot afford such actions as mean of isale sawab to his relative, then i think that his relative would be deprived of any reward and this would be unfair to them as in comparison to people who died and have relatives who can afford to do ummrah hajj and give sadaqa on behalf of their dead relatives.
I believe that islam is a very fair religion with equality of chances for every one,ie the rich and the poor should have chances to earn rewards from Allah who is the most merciful.
thus i would be grateful if you could let me know whether the mean i am using with intention of conveying isale sawab is right because i really want the my action i.e. reading quaran and doing nafil namaz benefit my dead relatives.
Grateful if i can have an urgent reply
