Reciting Al-Faatihah for the dead in a group
Fatwa No: 91640


What is the ruling on reciting Al-Faatihah, [Quran, chapter 1], in a group on the dead Muslims?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammad is His Slave and Messenger  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.


According to the most preponderant opinion of the scholars may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them it is permissible to recite the Quran or perform any other act of worship and intend its reward for the dead. However, there is no evidence on doing this in a group.

Allaah Knows best.
