[Performing] Hajj or ‘Umrah on behalf of another is [to be] done in three situations…
I have parents who are both of old age; my father is 75 years old, and my mother is 70. If I were to perform ‘umrah [ each on their behalf] and gifted its reward to them – while they are still alive – will they be rewarded for it?
Regarding the ‘umrah, can it be performed on behalf of another, since my father has died without performing the ‘umrah – and I live [too] far away [to do so on his behalf myself]?
Who is responsible for [performing] hajj on behalf of the father & mother, if they are still alive, but are not able to perform hajj?
My Mother performed the Hajj seven times, so is it permissible for me myself to perform [another] Hajj on her behalf?
I intend to continue to pay three men to perform the [voluntary] Hajj on behalf of myself, my father and my mother, so long as I am alive, so is there any religious prohibition in this?
