Performing Sa`y during `Umrah while riding

Q 2: My mother and I performed `Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) together. After we had finished Tawaf (circumambulating the Ka`bah), she felt tired. Because she is old and decrepit, I put her in a wheelchair to perform all rounds of Sa`y (going between Safa and Marwah). Is this permissible or not?

A: It is unobjectionable that your mother performs Sa`y on a wheelchair, for she is excused as performing Sa`y on foot is difficult for her.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
