Three day and forty day functions after a person passes away

Recommended Posts

Three day and forty day functions after a person passes away

Q: It is the norm to gather and recite Quraan for 3 days or 40 days after a person passes away. However, I have heard that Dar ul uloom Deoband does not approve of gathering for such recitations, even for 3 days. Please clarify whether it is a sunnah or bidah, and whether or not we should stop doing it?

A: These are innovatory practises. One should recite Qur'an individually at any time and convey the reward to the deceased.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها ، قالت : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : من أحدث في أمرنا هذا ما ليس منه فهو رد (مشكاة # 140)

مطلب في كراهة الضيافة من أهل الميت  وقال أيضا ويكره اتخاذ الضيافة من الطعام من أهل الميت لأنه شرع في السرور لا في الشرور وهي بدعة مستقبحة وروى الإمام أحمد وابن ماجه بإسناد صحيح عن جرير بن عبد الله قال كنا نعد الاجتماع إلى أهل الميت وصنعهم الطعام من النياحة اه وفي البزازية ويكره اتخاذ الطعام في اليوم الأول والثالث وبعد الأسبوع ونقل الطعام إلى القبر في المواسم واتخاذ الدعوة لقراءة القرآن وجمع الصلحاء والقراء للختم أو لقراءة سورة الأنعام أو الإخلاص والحاصل أن اتخاذ الطعام عند قراءة القرآن لأجل الأكل يكره وفيها من كتاب الاستحسان وإن اتخذطعاما للفقراء كان حسنا اه وأطال في ذلك المعراج وقال وهذه الأفعال كلها للسمعة والرياء فيحترز عنها لأنهم لا يريدون بها وجه الله تعالى اه (رد المحتار 2/ 240)

i know that 40 day thing is a turkish practice. The number 40 itself is important number for us. This practice comes from pre-islamic times. İt really sad that many people in Turkey dont know its a innovation. They think its a İslamic practice.

Exactly! when my uncle died, the same 3 and 40 day Qur'an recitation gathering was arranged. Its baseless. May Allah grant hidaya. Ameen.

İts originly comes from Asian Turks. As you know Turka are orginally from Asia.

Where "Asian" communities are concrened (People from India, Pakistan, Bangaladesh) the customs often resemble those of the Hindus since everyone lived side by side and unfortunately we Muslims (unlike the Sahaba RA) tend to get influenced and adopt "others'" ways rather than influence others with our ways!

 

Sad indeed however we inshaAllah and specially the younger generation can start anew. right?
