Accepting gifts when completing hifz (memorization of the Quraan)


1. Should we accept gifts when completing hifz (the memorization of the Quraan)?

2. If yes, should we ask those (who are going to gift us) for gifting us something which will be a  means of sadaqa jariya for them instead of some general gifts?


1. One should not expect people to give him a gift. However, if they gift him something out of mahabbat and appreciation, then it is permissible for him to accept it.

2. One should not tell people what type of gift to give him, as this amounts to asking people and expecting gifts from them, even though one's intention is for them to benefit through sadaqah jaariyah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
