Ask an Alim

Is Reciting fatiha on food and doing niyaz permissible?


Is it correct to recite fatiha infront of food.
(Somebody told, it is prove by muslim sharif in jild 1 safa 41,42)
and what about Doing niyaz?
Please clear my understanding


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

In Ahadith we have many Duas that you can recite on food and water. And giving food as Niyaz to the people and sending its reward to the deceased soul is totally correct and the reward reaches to the soul you intend.

In Ahadith we find, whatever we recite and send the reward, the deceased soul receives it. It is recommended to remember Marhumeen on Thursday night and Friday.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
