Hajj Badal - Performing Hajj on Behalf of SomeoneRegular price $2,500.00
Hajj Badal is performing Hajj on behalf of someone who is either unable to or medically unfit or dead.
This is a limited service to the IGP Community available until the Fajr of the 8th of Dhu al-Hijja. There are 25 local Syrian and Burmese Makkans (of refugee families) who have legal permission to perform Hajj this year and are offering to perform Hajj Badal as a service.
In return for performing the Hajj Badal on behalf of your loved one, an honorarium will be given to them. The fee includes their stay in tents in Mina, Arafat, Muzdalifah, food, and Qurbani.
After Hajj a confirmation and testimony certificate with witnesses will be given upon completion.
Also known as “Proxy Hajj,” Hajj Badal refers to the act of performing Hajj on behalf of someone who is unable to perform Hajj themselves. This includes people who are deceased, chronically disabled, or sick. Although Hajj Badal has been practiced since the time of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, today, the significance of Hajj Badal is supported by many a fatwa (input of Islamic scholars).
Hajj Badal can be performed for someone who is deceased or dead (not in this world anymore). It is supported by a narration of Ibn Abbas, who said that once a woman from Juhaynah came to meet Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and asked, “My mother vowed or intended to go for Hajj, but she was unable to go for Hajj before she died. Should I perform Hajj on her behalf?”
To which Prophet Muhammad ﷺ replied, “Yes, do Hajj on her behalf. Do you not think that you would pay it off for her if your mother were in debt? Pay off the debt that is owed to Allah, for Allah is more deserving than what is owed to Him should be paid off.” (Narrated by al-Bukhari, 1754)
In simpler words, if a Muslim who has fulfilled all other obligatory rituals of Islam and had enough to perform the obligation dies without performing Hajj, in such a case, it is an obligation that their family (children) perform Hajj Badal on their behalf from the wealth he has left.
Moreover, if someone wishes to perform Hajj Badal on behalf of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, then they should only perform Hajj if they have fulfilled the obligation on behalf of himself. Also, Allah (SWT), having complete knowledge, knows the hearts and affairs of his worshippers and their intentions. Therefore, if someone with sufficient wealth to perform Hajj dies without fulfilling the obligation, they shall fear that Allah (SWT) may question them for delaying Hajj unnecessarily.
