Many times when a Muslim does a favor for another Muslim the one receiving the favor will thank them, so they will reply by saying, do not thank me just make dua for me. The Scholars have explained that this is not correct.

The following is a summary translation taken from the website of Sheikh Fawzan

Sheikh Fawzan said, (in his book Highlights of the religious verdicts of Sheikh al-Islam Ibn Tamiya in the creed) Sheikh of Islam Ibn Tamiya, may Allah have mercy upon him, said

And from the manners of the one who gives to others or spends upon others is that they should not seek a favor based on what they have given nor should they seek a reward from the creation based upon what they have given. And from the rewards is to request supplication (dua).

Allah says about those He has commended, we only feed you seeking the Face of Allah; we do not want from you any reward or any thanks. (Chapter 76 verse 9)

And supplication is a reward, as comes in the Hadith, whoever does a favor for you then return the favor to them; and if you are not able to find anything to return the favor with, then supplicate for them until you know that your supplication has equaled their favor.

And Aisha, when she would send out charity, she would say to the one delivering the charity, listen to the supplication that they make for us, so that you can make the same supplication for them that they made for us and therefore our reward can remain with Allah.

Some of the pious predecessors would say, if a beggar says to you may Allah bless you, then say to them, and may Allah bless you as well.

Therefore whoever does well to the creation, whether they are from the Prophets, or righteous people, or a king or a rich person; then this good must be done sincerely for the Face of Allah, only seeking the Face of Allah.  And they should not request from the creation any reward, or supplication or anything else; not from a Prophet nor from a righteous man because Allah has commanded His slaves, all of them, to worship Him making the worship sincerely for Him alone.

Does anyone know what should we reply or do if someone says "Shukran"(Thanks)?

  Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah

Amma ba'd

Wa 'alaykum u salam wa rahmatullaahi wa baarakatu,  
Jazzak Allaahu khairun, Rasheed; this is highly beneficial, in sha` Allaah.

And notice that 'A`ishah (radiallaahu 'anha) said:
quote:
...listen to the supplication that they make for us...

Don't look down upon any good deed, even delivering someone else's charity.



Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.

The ruling on saying 'shukran' to the one who rendered goodness to a person

Shaykh Ahmad bin Yahyaa an-Najmee (rahimahullaah) said:
quote:
Whoever did that has abandoned that which is more superior, which is the saying, "JazaakAllaahu khayran" (may Allaah reward you with good). And in Allaah lies success.




Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
