Salaams. Recently my cousin sister passed away, she was very young, 17 years. My mother has also passed away, since nearly 7 years. I have been told that the Surah Mulk prtotects you from grave punsishment, if this Surah is prayed for oneself. I wanted to know whether it is possible to read this Surah for those who have already passed away, so that their punishment of the grave is decreased. Also could you tell me which Surahs are the most beneficial and useful to pray for those who have passed away
