    dua for dead

    can someone tell me if making dua for someone who has died will benefit them? i read "When a human being dies, all of his deeds are terminated except for three types: an ongoing sadaqah, a knowledge (of Islaam) from which others benefit, and a righteous child who makes du'aa for him." . so i just would like if someone could clear up if the dua will benefit them

    Can't comment on the hadith you posted, but everyone accepts that you can and should make dua for the dead.

    When the pious of the past are mentioned people usually say rahimahullah after their name, that is a dua.

    Even the janaza prayer over the dead is a form of dua for the deceased.

    Yes, make Dua'a for them. It's beneficial.

    The hadith you posted is authentic.

    Wallahu Alam.
    Call onto Allah, such that you are certain that He, al-Mujib wal-Kareem, will answer your call before you even lower your hands.

    The answer is in your post, Brother (the part in bold).
