He wants to give sadaqah (charity) on behalf of a sinful Muslim

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If you know people who are not good practising muslims, can you donate money on there behalf? On the day of jugment will these people know that some of there good deeds have come from someone else donating money for them?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, it is permissible for you to give sadaqah on behalf of your Muslim brother even if he commits some sins. We ask Allaah to reward you for doing that. 

There is no doubt that they will know on the Day of Resurrection that you have given in charity on their behalf.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
