Performing Hajj and `Umrah on behalf of two people in one year
Both Hajj and ‘Umrah are separate rites. (Part No. 11; Page No. 59) The Prophet (peace be upon him) explained how to perform them, when they are performed as Qiran Hajj (combining Hajj and ‘Umrah simultaneously), Ifrad Hajj (performing Hajj only), or Tamattu‘ Hajj (combining Hajj and ‘Umrah with a break in between). Anyone who wants to assume Ihram (ritual state for Hajj or ‘Umrah) to perform ‘Umrah on behalf of their mother for example, and then after Tahalul (removal of the ritual state for Hajj or ‘Umrah) following ‘Umrah to assume Ihram for Hajj on behalf of their father or vice versa, may do so. If they assume Ihram to perform either Hajj or ‘Umrah for themselves and after Tahalul they assume Ihram to perform another for their father for example, this is also permissible, because actions depend upon intentions, and every person shall have but that which they have intended.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
