Performing Hajj using prize money

Q 1: I was fortunate to be one of the winners in a competition on the Islamic sciences. (Part No. 11; Page No. 40)  The prize was going on Hajj to Allah's Sacred House. This happened the year before the last, and I performed Hajj in that same year and visited Allah's Sacred House. My question is: I have made the intention to perform Hajj this year on behalf of my brother, who died when he was twenty. I want to know whether my previous Hajj removed the obligation on me for Hajj so that I can perform Hajj on behalf of my brother or whether I still have to perform Hajj for myself once more, because the Hajj journey prize I won through the competition did not remove the obligation from me?

A: The Hajj you performed is valid and sufficient and counts as having discharged the obligatory duty of Hajj. So you may perform Hajj on behalf of your late brother and may Allah reward you with the best!May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
