Collective Qurʾān recitation after death
Is it Sunnah to organise gatherings of the recitation of the Qurʾān after someone passes away or is it better to recite individually?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
It is better to recite the Qurʾān individually. It is not Sunnah to organise gatherings of the recitation of the Qurʾān after someone’s demise. However, if this is done without it being regarded necessary or Sunnah and without it becoming customary, then it is permissible.
Allah knows best
