    As-salamu 'alaykum

    The du'a for isal al-thawab you are mentioning exists, though I do not think that it is sunnat. I have not seen any shari' dalil for it, but it does not mean that you cannot do it, of course, one should.

    Allahumma balligh wa awsil thawaba ma qara'nahu wa nuran ma talawnahu awwalan ila ruhi sayyidina wa nabiyina wa shafi'ina wa mawlana Muhammadin, sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sallam, thumma ila arwahi jami'i l-anbiyai wa l-mursalin, salawatullahi wa salamuhu 'alayhim ajma'in, thumma ila arwahi jami'i s-sahabati wa l-qarabati wa t-tabi'ina, ridwanullahi 'alayhim ajma'in, thumma ila arwahi jami'i 'ibadika s-salihina wa awliyaika l-muttaqina, thumma ila abaina, wa ummahatina, wa abnaina wa banatina, wa ikhwanina, wa akhawatina, wa ustadhina, wa mashaikhina, wa likullin man haqqahu 'alayna wa li jami'i l-mu'minina wa l-mu'minati wa l-muslimina wa l-muslimati al-ahyai minhum wa l-amwat.

    It means, (not word for word translation)

    O' Allah, bring the reward and the light of what we have recite, first of all to the holy soul of the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sallam, and then to the holy souls of all the prophets and messengers, salawatullahi wa salamahu 'alayhim, then to blessed souls of all the sahaba, the relatives (of the Prophet) and the tabi'in, then to the blessed souls of your pious slaves and your God-fearing friends (awliya), and then to our fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, teachers and shuyukh, and to everone that has a right upon us, and to all the mumins, males and females, and the muslims, males and females, those who are living and those who has left the world.

    I'll see if I can find time to write it into arabic, so it may be easier for you to read.

    Allah Hafiz
    Ibn Amin

    I wrote both the du'a and made the translation in a bit hurry. If anyone finds faults in it, please correct it.

    i don't think there's any fixed/specific words to do isaal al-thawab. you can convey the reward with a simple du'a like the one in the hadith of sa'd radiyAllahu ta'ala anhu who had a well dug so the reward of providing water could be sent to his deceased mother. he just stood in front of the well and said haadhihi li ummi sa'd.

    so you could literally say: oh Allah! give the reward of our recitation to so-and-so.

    but, i have seen the ulama of ahlus sunnah always offer the reward to the prophet sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam first, then the other prophets 'alaihimus salam; then the sahaba and ahle bayt, the awliya and then the particular person(s) in the end.

    I would like to know how to recite Ithaal Thawaab in English - Allahoumma awthil twawaaba wa karanahoo.......................

    How do we send the blessings of reading Holy Qur'an etc. to the souls of the deceased - in English?

    Many of us here don't understand the Arabic language.
