There are several things one may do to benefit a departed parent. The simplest thing that is available to everyone at all times is to pray for our parents and dead relatives. God tells us in the Quran that we should always pray for them saying: Our Lord, have mercy on them as they have brought me up when I was young. When God, with His infinite grace and limitless mercy, looks at people and weighs their deeds from the same angle, He forgives them all their sins. This is exactly what every one of us needs in order to be certain of a happy new life in heaven

He can do sadaqah i.e give charity to the poor , by this Allah swt rewards the deceased parent , if parents have taught Quran ,then every word recited by their students will have rewards even after death , Allah is most rewarding and forgiving

It is possible just like hindus donate things to pandits for theie deceased parents with the hope that the stuff will reach their incestors.. reading the holy books of any relegion with the hope that God will credit the reward to the deceased sounds more logical
