1) Alhumdulillah by the grace and rahmat of Allah swt I am planning to do Sadaqah Jariya by funding a Hafiz . who can the reward for sadaqa jariya be given to ? Can I include my parents , wife , children , bro ,sis relatives  ( all alive ) as well as all the people in my family who have passed away . 

Allah is the greatest , far greater than we can imagine , the sawab won’t decrease and Allah looks into our niyat . please advice 

2) when doing normal sadqa say for 10rs can I make intention for all the Muslim men and mulim woman and believing men and believing woman ?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

When one makes an intention to do good, that is a guest from Allah. Hasten in fulfilling the intention to do Sadaqae Jariya. The reward for Sadaqae Jariya will be according to one’s intention. You may make intention for whoever you wish to. For all your family members and the entire Ummat.  

This will not decrease anything from their Thawab or from your Thawab.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
