Welcome. You have to be careful.
¿Por qué? means Why?, it's two words, and it requires the accent mark over the 'e'.
Porque means because, is one word, and does not have an accent mark.
El porqué means the reason, is one word, and has the accent.
They all sound very similar.
Actually, "por que" is also possible, but it is just a combination of two words that happen to appear one after another:
Haz lo que puedas por Manuel
Haz lo que puedas por que se cure = Do what you can so that he gets recovered
