Hajj Badal (Proxy)

By Moulana Imraan Vawda


Q.) I would like to send a pious friend of mine to hajj in the absence of my father ( Hajj Badal). This friend of mine got the information that since he has not done hajj before, he cannot do hajj badal. His concern is that I will be wasting my money on him and my father (who passed away) will not get the rewards. Please explain if this is true? [Roanaq Osman]

A.) If Hajj is Fardh upon your friend at this moment, i.e. he has all the means to go for Hajj, then it will be Makrooh Tahrimi for your friend to do Hajj-e-Badal. He will first have to perform his own Hajj.

However, if Hajj is not Fardh on him, i.e. he does not have the means to go for Hajj, then he can do Hajj-e-Badal even though he has not performed Hajj before. (Ahsanul Fataawa vol.4 pg.522)

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
