Some of the scholars say that the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) granted permission for the hajj to be performed on behalf of the deceased – without [specifically mentioning] the ‘umrah.
[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?
Is it permissible to perform ‘umrah on behalf of someone who has died? And is it permissible for me to perform ‘umrah on behalf of my father who is still alive, but is unable to do so [himself]?
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, 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]?
