A person who goes for hajj badal for some one, must first go for his hajj/umrah or he can just go for the first time for others?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
pls. answer these 3 questions
1) can a female grow nails?
2) we muslims generally use the word "ALLAH` & continue to say `ALLAH` We should not use the work "GOD" because GOD has female gender GODDESS. ALLAH has no gender. In my opinion, it will be a shirk to say God. pls. shade light on this issue.

Hajj Transfer for another
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: can a female grow nails?
The Prophet (saws) said "Five things are
in accordance with
Hadrat Anas ibn Maalik (r.a.), the noble companion who served the Prophet (saws) for ten years said: "The time period for us to trim the moustache, cut the nails, pluck out the underarm hairs and cut the pubic hairs was forty nights."
The clipping of the nails is what is described by the Messenger of Allah (saws) as being in accordance with ‘Fitra’ or the perfect nature of mankind, and the time period mentioned by the noble companions to clip one’s nails was forty nights.
For one, regardless of whether one be a male or a female, to let their nails grow beyond a period of 40 days would be an act against the ‘fitrah’ or the perfect nature of mankind.
Your Question: we muslims generally use the word "ALLAH` & continue to say `ALLAH` We should not use the work "GOD" because GOD has female gender GODDESS. ALLAH has no gender. In my opinion, it will be a shirk to say God. pls. shade light on this issue.
Without an iota of a doubt, the name that our Lord Creator has chosen for Himself is ‘Allah’, and the believers must use this blessed Name when referring to Him.
Not only does the term ‘God’ which is used as a ‘loose’ translation in the English language has a female gender (goddess), the term can also be used without a capital ‘G’ in the English language to mean a smaller ‘god’, and it also has a plural form to mean many ‘gods’!!!
The true equivalent of the English language ‘god’ would be ‘ilaah’ in the Arabic language; but because of the severe limitations of the English language, when the term ‘God’ is used with a capital ‘G’, it refers to the One and Only Lord and Creator of the Heavens and the Earth and everything that exists in between.
Although it is indeed best and most suitable and accurate to use the blessed term and name ‘Allah’ when referring to the One and Only Lord Creator, to declare that using its English translation of ‘God’ (with a capital ‘G’) would be an act of the unforgivable abomination of ‘shirk’ would be too harsh a judgment!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Israa verses 110-111:
110 Say: "Call upon ‘Allah’ or call upon ‘Ar-Rahmaan’: by whatever name ye call upon Him (it is well): for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Neither speak thy Prayer aloud, nor speak it in a low tone, but seek a middle course between."
111 Say: "Praise be to Allah Who begets no son and has no partner in (His) Dominion: nor (needs) He any to protect Him from humiliation: Yea magnify Him for His Greatness and Glory!"
Your Question: a
person who goes for hajj badal for some one, must first go for his hajj/umrah
or he can just go for the first time for others?
Narrated Hadrat Ibn 'Abbas that a woman of the Juhainah tribe came to the Prophet (saws), and said, 'My mother had vowed to perform pilgrimage (Hajj), but she died before she could fulfill her vow. Should I do it on her behalf?' The Prophet (saws) said, 'Yes. Perform Hajj on her behalf. Would you not pay the debt of your mother if she had owed someone? Fulfill it. Allah is more deserving of receiving payment for what is due to Him'."
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 1806 Narrated by Abu Razin
A man of Banu Amir said: “O Messenger of Allah (saws), my father is very old, he cannot perform Hajj and Umrah himself, nor can be ride on a mount.” He (saws) said: “Perform Hajj and Umrah on behalf of your father.”
Although it is not a stipulated or obligatory condition of ‘hajje-badal’ in Shariah, it is highly recommended that the person performing the Hajj for someone, should have fulfilled his own obligation of Hajj prior to doing it for someone else.
A person performing ‘hajje-badal’ for another without having performed his own, would be as wise as one who has a huge debt himself, but he utilizes his energy in fulfilling the debt of another!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
