One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

CAN WE PERFORM UMRAH ON BEHALF OF ANOTHER PERSON WHO IS ALIVE AND NOT BEEN ABLE TO VISIT THE HOUSE OF ALLAH. 

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:

 

Umrah 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.

 

The Umrah pilgrimage is a Sunnah and not at all an obligatory duty unto the believers; thus if one is alive but does not have the physical and the financial ability to perform the pilgrimage, there is absolutely no obligation upon him to do so.

 

But if one is alive and has the financial means but does not posses the physical means to perform the Umrah pilgrimage, there is absolutely no harm if the person finances another person to perform the Umrah pilgrimage on his/her behalf. Or if ones loved one is old and has made intention to perform the Umrah but is unable to do so, there is absolutely no harm if their children or a loved one performs the pilgrimage on their behalf.

 

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.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
