Question: [Regarding] the ‘umrah O noble Shaykh, 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 – then what is the difference in that O Shaykh; will he (the son) be rewarded for that?

Response: Yes, he can perform ‘umrah on behalf of his deceased father – just as he (the father) had performed ‘umrah for himself  – and then gift its reward to him (his father); it will benefit him, with the Permission of Allaah; it will benefit the father.

[Performing ‘umrah] is from those deeds which are [permissible to be] done on behalf of another – it is one of the deeds that can be done on behalf of others, and all Praise is due to Allaah [alone] – for those [who are] alive as well as those [who are] deceased.
