What is the ruling on a person who performs Hajj on the expense of a ruler?
A ruler may give his subjects some money and tell them: Go to Hajj with this money. Is it permissible for them to perform Hajj with it? If they do perform Hajj with it, will that count as the obligatory Hajj? I hope your answer will be supported with proofs.
It is permissible for them to do that and their Hajj is valid, because of the general relevant proofs in this regard. (Part No. 11; Page No. 37) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
