Default Reciting more Quran for our mothers than for our fathers?





A sister asked me this today and I’d appreciate it if someone knowledgeable could help insha Allah ta’aala. The question is, if one dedicates some recitation of Quran to their parents, must it always be in a 3 to one ratio (e.g. 3 Juz for mother and one for father, or three surah Yaseens for mother and one for father etc.)?

I know we ought to love our mother three times more than our fathers so wouldn’t that mean we’re supposed do three times as much ‘ibadaat for them too (e.g. one mosque built for dad, three for mom or one hajj for dad, 3 for mommy)?

It was narrated by Abu Hurayrah that a man came to the Prophet and asked him: 'Who is most deserving of my close companionship?' He replied: “Your mother; your mother; your mother; then your father; then the next closest to you in kinship; then the one next closest.”

My understanding was, while doing 'isale sawaab' one can give to more than one person. It doesn't have to be separate. Someone has posted more details in one of the threads here, If I remember correctly after reciting the quran one should also mention in the end sawaab for all the dead Muslims in the world.

Hakim al-Ummat Maulana Ashraf `Ali Tahanawi wrote:

"Isaale Thawaab specifically for Rasulullah ()
According to Hadrat Haji Imdaadullah , the full thawaab of any `ibadah reaches every dead person; it is not divided between them. But love and respect demand that we should recite something and convey its thawaab specifically to Rasulillah even if it is not a great deal that we can read. For example, a person may recite Surah Ikhlas thrice and dedicate its thawaab specifically to Rasulillah ; or to the other Messengers of Allah :alayhi: ; or the pious people; or the ordinary Muslims whether dead or alive, or those to be born. And on a special occasion (such as when a person dies) a person may recite something and convey its thawaab to the marhum". In response to a question, Hadrat said that a person may even dedicate the thawab of any recitation to the living.
[Discourses, p. 32]

"Isaale Thawaab does not Diminish the Sender's Reward
When a person makes Isaale Thawaab to the deceased, the reward of the sender does not decrease. A separate reward in full is given to the deceased. If there are multiple recipients, each one gets a separate reward in full".
[Discourses, p. 40]
