Carrying out Faatiha Khwani for the deceased

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Can you please elaborate on the perfect method of Faatiha Khwani. What’s the ruling of 3 days Faatiha Khwani and what’s the method of doing Faatiha Khwani when someone dies?


A: There is no basis for this. You should immediately read and do some charitable work on behalf of the deceased. Don’t leave the deceased for three days showing total disregard. Do what you can possibly do immediately.

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