The meeqaat is the meeqaat of the one who is delegated to do Hajj

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
A man died two years ago and he was not able to go for Hajj. Now his family and children want to do Hajj on his behalf, but they do not have enough money to enable them to send one of them from Pakistan to do Hajj on his behalf. Hence they want to delegate one of the Muslims who live in Makkah and pay him the expenses of Hajj and the hadiy (sacrificial animal). Can Hajj be done on his behalf in this manner, and will he get the reward?.

The correct scholarly view is that the meeqaat of one who is doing Hajj on behalf of another is the meeqaat that counts, because he is the one who who is doing the Hajj himself. The meeqaat of the one on whose behalf he is doing Hajj is irrelevant. Based on this, it is permissible for you to delegate someone from among the people of Makkah or its environs to perform Hajj on behalf of your father.

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