Is it permissable to read Quran as a form of khatm for a departed soul? its something which we have been following for years and years and today we hear that it is not going to benefit the soul.. Please explain this to me so that i can not be mis-guided even when I advise our dear sisters..


Yes, it is permissible to read Quran to benefit a departed soul. However, one should keep this in mind that whoever is participating, they are doing it on their own. It should not be forced to people and also they should be aware of the shariah ruling regarding wudhu and ghusal (Taharah).

Also, you should not fix a specific date (3rd day, 40th day etc.) for this action.

And Allah knows best.
