Question

Our parents died and they did not perform the obligation of Hajj, nor did they leave a testament concerning it. Should we perform Hajj for them and how is that done?


Answer


If they were well-off in their lives and they were able to perform Hajj wIth their wealth, you are obligated to perform Hajj for them from their wealth. If you perform Hajj for them with wealth other than theirs as an act of charity on your part, then you will be rewarded for that.

However, if they were in difficult circumstances (i.e., poor), you do not have to perform Hajj for them. Or if one of them was poor, you do not have to perform Hajj on behalf of the one that was poor. However, if you want to be generous and perform Hajj for them, you will receive a great reward and that is a form of kindness (to parents).



Shaikh Ibn Baz (Rahimahullah)
