Eesaal thawaab

Fatwaa ID: 366

Assalamualaikum warahmatulahi wabarkathu

If we donate something on behalf of someone I.e, if I donate something on behalf of my father or mother for ex a Quran with or without their knowledge,will I get the same reward without any reduction in their reward or should I donate done for me and for them separately?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

If you donate someone on behalf of someone else, i.e., eesaal thawaab, then you too will receive the same reward as them. Allaah Ta’aala is ever generous and kind. Obviously, if you donate separately as well, then the your reward will be more.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
