Q: What is the preferred surahs/duas to recite at the graveside of loved ones?
A: You may read any portion of the Qur’aan or any du`aa for the maghfirat and forgiveness of the inmate of the grave. Reciting Surah Ikhlaas 11 times is recommended. Similarly Surah Zilzaal and Surah Takaathur are also recommended.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
