My brother died at the age of 35, and he had not performed hajj. Should I perform ‘umrah or hajj on his behalf – even though he had not done so?
[Regarding] the ‘umrah, if he (the son) wants to gift [the reward of] an ‘umrah to his deceased father, even though he (the father) had done ‘umrah himself…
[Regarding] the ‘umrah, is it permissible to do so on behalf of another if the person is unable [to do so himself] due to an illness?
My mother died whilst I was young, and so I hired someone trustworthy to perform hajj on her behalf. My father had also died, and I heard from some of my relatives that he himself had performed the hajj.
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?
