Reading of Quran/Yasin in congregation in masjid or house for Isal-e-sawab of marhum

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I would like to ask whether it is accepted in Shariah that if a person dies than for isal-e-sawab of the marhum the people of that locality, his relatives can arrange for reciting of the Quran/Yasin in congregation in masjid/house. What if this is becoming a regular practice for every dead person? Request you to kindly provide Quranic verses and Hadith as reference to support your answer.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 45/40/SD=2/1438)

According to Shariah, the prevalent Quran khawani in which the feast is arranged and the reciters of the Holy Quran are paid is unlawful. For isal-e-sawab, it is not necessary to invite people, it may be done individually.
