Question: My father performed the obligatory hajj before dying. [After his death] my brother performed a voluntary hajj on his behalf; so is it permissible for us to regularly perform a voluntary hajj on his behalf?

Response: There is no harm in [performing] a voluntary hajj on a regular basis; and that which is done beyond what is obligatory shall be considered voluntary, and there is no limit to voluntary acts of worship.
