Q 1: I came on an assignment to
during the blessed Hajj season and due to my financial situation, and my inability to pay the expenses for Hajj for my wife nor am I expected to afford providing them for her in the future,
I am asking if it is permissible for me to perform the obligatory duty of Hajj on behalf of my wife who is in good health and lives in
as I am a poor man and I do not expect to be able to cover the expenses for her to perform Hajj now or in the future?
If your wife is still alive and in good health, as you mentioned, performing Hajj on her behalf will be invalid. Hajj is not obligatory upon her so long as she is not able to perform it due to her poverty or due to lack of a Mahram (spouse or permanently unmarriageable relative) to travel with her. We ask Allah to grant you success and ease.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
