Q 2: What are the rituals of Hajj
in which it is permissible to appoint a proxy or deputy to perform them on our behalf,
and when is it permissible to perform Hajj on behalf of others?
It is permissible to perform Hajj or ‘Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) on behalf of a deceased Muslim or a living Muslim who is unable to perform it themselves due to old age or an incurable disease. It is permissible to appoint a person to act as a proxy in Ramy Al-Jimar (throwing pebbles at the stone pillars during Hajj), if someone is not strong enough to do this by themselves, such as a child, or due to old age or illness. The proxy should be one of the pilgrims that year and should have already thrown their own pebbles.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
