Īṣāl e-Thawāb (Donating Reward) – For Multiple People

Question:

Is īṣāl e-thawāb (donating reward) valid to multiple people?

Answer:

It is permissible to donate reward to multiple people, and there is no objection in this; rather, it is more virtuous to donate reward to all Muslims. Consequently, Rasūlullāh ‎ﷺ sacrificed a ram on behalf of the entire ummah and donated it’s reward to them.

It is stated in Fatāwā Tātarkhāniyyah and Radd-ul-Muhtār, “It is more virtuous for one giving optional charity to intend donating its reward to all the Muslims, as they all receive the reward.”

(Adapted from Ṣadaqa-e-Jāriyah wa Īṣāl e-Thawāb ke Faḍāil wa Aḥkām by Muftī Muhammad Riḍwan.
