prayers for the dead are on the same footing as gifts for the living. the angel goes in to the dead with a tray of light, bearing a cloth of light, and says - this is a gift for you from your brother so and so, from your relative so and so.

one day the prophet Abraham invited a person to dinner, but when he learned that he was an infidel he canceled the invitation and turned him out. Immediately the divine voice reprimanded him saying - you didn’t give him food for a day even because he belonged to a different religion, yet for the last seventy years i am feeding him in spite of his heresy. had you fed him for one night, you would not have become poor on that account.
