What Benefits The Deceased Who Died In Kufr Gets?

Question:¬†If someone’s relative dies as a non Muslim it is generally accepted that you cannot pray for them but does giving charity on their behalf benefit them in the akhira or is there anything one can do to benefit the person’s soul?

 

Answer: Assalamu Alaikum,

Once a person dies as a non Muslim without Iman, then charities given on his behalf would not benefit him. Other good deeds on his behalf will also not benefit him.

And Allah Knows Best
