The time for Hajj is upon the Horizon, with that regard, Shaikh Rabee’ bin Hady حفظه الله was asked about performing Hajj on behalf of someone and so he replied [paraphrased]:
“There is some difference [on some issues related to this affair]; there is one aspect the scholars agree upon and another aspect they differ on. They agree regarding the performance of Hajj on behalf of a relative, and that is due to the questions in the ahaadith related to the issue all being related to family members, some of them stating “my father died and did not make Hajj…”, others, “my mother died and did not make Hajj…”, and “my father is required to make the obligatory Hajj however he is old and weak…”. Similarly the hadith of Ibn ‘Abbas that the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم heard a man say “Labbayk for Shubruma”, so he صلى الله عليه و سلم asked, “Who is Shubruna?”, the man said, “A brother or relative of mine”. The prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم then asked, “Have you performed Hajj for yourself [before]?”, he said, “No”, so the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said, “Perform Hajj for yourself first then on behalf of Shubruma”.
