If someone is paid to perform Hajj on behalf of a deceased person,
whether they are a man or a woman, or for someone who is unable to go due to old age or an incurable illness, will the person paid to do it be rewarded by Allah?
If someone performs Hajj or ‘Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) on behalf of others, whether they are paid or not, the Thawab (reward from Allah) for the Hajj and ‘Umrah will be given to those they performed it for. (Part No. 11; Page No. 78) It is hoped that the proxy will also receive a great reward, based on their sincerity and desire to do good. Anyone who arrives at
Al-Masjid Al-Haram (the Sacred Mosque in Makkah) and does many Nafilah (supererogatory) acts of ‘Ibadah (worship) and good deeds will hopefully be rewarded with immense good, if they are done sincerely for Allah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
