What is Hajj Badal?

Hajj Badal, Badal Hajj, or Hajj al-Badal is the act of completing Hajj on behalf of someone else. Hajj is a compulsory tenet of Islam, and anyone who is able to complete it must do so.

However, there are times where a Muslim is unable to complete Hajj:

In these situations, it may be beneficial for a relative or friend of the person to take out Hajj Badal on their behalf. This is where we come in. We send out a person on behalf of the one who did not complete Hajj in order to complete the rite in their name, and hence fulfilling that obligation, inshah’Allah.

Evidence

‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Abbaas reported that a woman from Juhaynah came to the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said:

“My mother vowed to go for Hajj, but she died before she did so. Can I perform Hajj on her behalf?” He said:

«Yes, perform Hajj on her behalf. Do you not think if your mother owed a debt that you would pay it off for her? Fulfil her debt to Allaah; for Allaah is more deserving that what is owed to him should be paid»

– transmitted by al-Bukhaaree – no.1754

‘Abdullaah ibn Buraydah narrated that his father (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhu) said:

Whilst I was sitting with the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), a woman came to him and said: “I gave a slave woman in charity to my mother, then she died.” He said:

«Your reward is assured, and she (the slave woman) has been returned to you as an inheritance.»

«Fast on her behalf.»

She said: “She never went for Hajj, should I perform Hajj on her behalf?” He said:

«Perform Hajj on her behalf.»

– transmitted by Muslim – no.1149

‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Abbaas (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhumaa) narrated:

al-Fadhl was riding behind Allaah’s Messenger, and a woman from the tribe of Khath’am came, and al-Fadhl started looking at her and she started looking at him. The Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) turned al-Fadhl’s face to the other side. The woman said:

“O Allaah’s Messenger! The obligation of Hajj enjoined by Allaah on His worshipers has become due on my father and he is old and weak, and he cannot sit firm on the mount; may I perform Hajj on his behalf?” The Prophet replied:

«Yes, you may.»

That happened during the Hajj al-Widaa’ [of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)].

– transmitted by al-Bukhaaree 2.589

Abu Ruzayn al-‘Uqaylee narrated:

A man of Banu ‘Aamir said: O Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), my father is very old, he cannot perform Hajj and ‘Umrah himself nor can he ride on a mount. The Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

«Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah on behalf of your father.»

FAQs

Can I do an additional, voluntary Hajj Badal for my family member?

Q: My mother performed the hajj seven times, so is it permissible for me myself to perform [yet another] hajj on her behalf?

A: Yes, it is permissible for you to perform hajj on her behalf – an eighth hajj or more. This is from kindness towards her, and therein is great reward for you if you have performed the hajj for yourself.

Can I perform Hajj Badal on behalf of the disabled?

Q: Is hajj obligatory upon the disabled (incapacitated) or not?

A: Whoever is able to perform the hajj with his money, but is unable to physically undertake the hajj due to a persistent prohibiting factor, then he is required to appoint someone to perform the obligatory hajj on his behalf – with the condition that the appointee has already performed hajj for himself.

Should I do Hajj Badal on behalf of 16 year old who has died?

Q: Should I perform hajj on behalf of my 16 year old son who died, and had not performed the hajj?

A: If a boy or girl attains puberty or reaches 15 years of age, then it is obligatory upon him [or her] to perform the hajj if he [or she] is [physically and financially] able to do so. The performance of the hajj before attaining puberty does not suffice (i.e. it does not relieve him of the obligation of having to perform the obligatory hajj). So, if he died after coming of age and having had the ability, then perform the hajj on his behalf from his money or his guardian should perform the hajj on his behalf.

Can I do Hajj Badal on behalf of deceased grandparents?

Should I do Hajj Badal on behalf of my paralysed son?

Q: I have a paralytic son. I am thinking about doing Hajj for him, because I fear he will suffer harm if he was to do it himself. So is it permissible for me to do the hajj on his behalf?

A: If the son is paralytic as you say, then it is permissible for you to do the obligatory hajj on his behalf if you have already done the hajj for yourself.

Should I do Hajj Badal and Umrah Badal on behalf of my parents who are alive?

Q: Is it permissible to perform the hajj or the umrah on behalf of parents who are alive?

A: There is [some] explanation (required) in this issue: As for the obligatory hajj and the obligatory umrah, then it is not permissible to appoint anyone on their behalf. [The exception being] unless there is something permanent preventing them from performing the hajj or the umrah; such as the one who is suffering from a prolonged illness as a result of which he is unable to travel for the hajj to perform the rites of hajj, or the one who is elderly [and] senile, based upon the hadeeth of the woman who said to the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) that it has become incumbent upon her father to perform the obligatory hajj, however he is unable to travel, “so should I perform the hajj on his behalf?” The Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said to her:

«Perform the hajj on behalf of your father», [Transmitted by Abu Daawood and at-Tirmidhee]

As for the voluntary hajj, then the issue is quite open, so there is no harm in him performing the hajj on his [parents’] behalf, even if (t)he(y) was (were) able [to do so themselves], [and] this is the opinion of a group of scholars.

What actions will benefit my parents?

Q: What are the actions which benefit the parents, both (when they are) alive and (when they are) dead?

A: The actions are honouring them during their life; and extending good towards them in speech and action. Undertaking the responsibility for all their needs in terms of their financial needs and their dwelling and other than that, and being kind and gentle towards them, and good speech with them and being of service to them, as He (Ta’aala) says:

{And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be dutiful to your parents}, [Soorah al-Israa., Aayah 23]

As for after their death, then that which remains in honouring them also is supplication and giving in charity on their behalf; and performing the hajj and the umrah on their behalf and settling the debts they were responsible for, and maintaining the ties of the womb (kinship) which are related to them both and also honouring their friends and executing their [Islamically] legislated will.
