1 A non-Haji performing Haj-e-Badl Mon 31 Aug 2015

If a person hasn’t performed his Fardh Haj can he perform Hajj-e-Badl on behalf of a deceased person?

It is Makrooh to do so.

2 Can a sick person appoint another to perform Haj on his behalf Mon 31 Aug 2015

Haj was Fardh on a particular person. He was ready to fulfil his obligation of Haj. However, before performing his Haj he was afflicted with illness. The doctors have said that it will be difficult for him to recover before 4 – 6 months. Can this person appoint another to perform Haj on his behalf?

3 Performing Haj with Haraam funds Mon 31 Aug 2015

Khalid has unjustly taken possession of Zaid’s land. If Khalid performs Haj will his Haj be accepted or not?

The sin of unjustly usurping the land of another is a separate sin but the obligation of Haj will be discharged. This means that the person will not receive any reward for peforming Haj. However, if one performed Haj with Haraam wealth, it will not be accepted.
Fataawa Mahmoodiyya pg.451 vol.15

4 Avoiding a menstrual cycle during Haj Mon 31 Aug 2015

5 Kissing the Hajar-e-Aswad Mon 31 Aug 2015

One person states that kissing the Hajr-e-Aswad on the occasion of Haj is not Sunnah, Waajib or Fardh. It is not mentioned in the Quraan Sharif, Hadith Sharif, nor is there any narration in this regard from the Sahaaba, in fact kissing the Hajr-e-Aswad is an innovation.

8 Delaying Hajj due to breastfeeding Wed 06 Mar 2019


Our names (My wife and
I) have come up on the accredited Hajj list this year. We have a breastfeeding
baby who will be approximately 14 months old at the time of Hajj this year

We would prefer for
her to be breastfed full term, for the health benefits etc.

Does the need of the
child take preference over Hajj? Or does Hajj take preference over the need of
the child?
