Having a Yaseen khatam for a deceased

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Today, 2 years completed since my dadi passed away. We as a family decided to do a khatam of Surah Yaseen for her. Thus, we distributed Yaseen amongst us. Is it ok to do so?


A: Rather each person should recite a portion of the Qur’an and convey the reward in his own time and place.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
