I became a Muslim aged 18 years, and my best friend's father took very good care of me. He treated me like his own daughter, arranged my marriage, and has played a grandfather figure to my children - he treated my children just like his own grandchildren.
Sadly, he passed away very recently and has left me a gift in his will. I am praying for him and would like to know if I read Qur'an or give sadaqah on his behalf would that be counted as sadaqah jaariyah or is this only restricted to his blood children?
Jaza kallaahu khairun
