Question: [Before passing away], my father performed the obligatory hajj. [After he died] 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 extra shall be considered voluntary, that which is done beyond what is obligatory shall be considered voluntary, and there is no limit to voluntary acts of worship.
