Muslims all over the world gather for Eesaal e Sawaab. “Esaal e Sawaaab”means conveying the reward of. In this respect there is a Hadees reported by Hazrat Anas bin Maalik [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] that he asked the Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] : ” When we give charity on behalf of our dead and perform Hajj on their behalf, do they receive the reward of these actions?” He replied: “Without doubt they do receive their rewards. Not only that, but they become very happy, just as any one of you would become happy on receiving gifts.”
It is the consensus of the Sahaaba, the earlier Ulamaa, and the latter ones that the above is (a) Effective and that (b) it is certainly permissible, and in fact meritorious, to do so.
If one wants to convey the reward of one’s recital of Holy Qur’aan, charity, Nafil Salaat (Non Obligatory), fasts and good deeds, Hajj, Umraah etc., then one should convey it to the virtuous soul of our beloved Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), one’s relatives, and all the Muslim men and women. All of them will receive the same reward without any deduction; the one who has carried this out will also receive the same reward without any loss. It is also valid to convey the reward to the living persons.
