Doing Hajj and ‘Umrah on behalf of another

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:
Can one living here in saudi Arabia do Umrah by the name of any person living in home country.
A) If the person is capable of coming herevin the future.
B) If teh person cannot come here for any reasons like economy or health?
(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.)

Praise be to Allaah.

It is not correct to do ‘Umrah on behalf of one who is physically able to do it himself (if he comes there himself). 

With regard to one who is not able to do it for financial reasons, such a person is not obliged to do Hajj or ‘Umrah. Rather it is correct to do Hajj and ‘Umrah on behalf of one who is physically unable to do them, and on behalf of the deceased. And Allaah knows best. 

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.
