Changing Intention to Perform Hajj Badl

Fatwa ID: 04081

Answered by: Alimah Sabrina al-Faarsiyyah

 

Question:

 

Someone made an intention of Umrah for Hajj Tamattu for himself. Now he wants to Hajj Badal on behalf of someone. Can he do anything now?

 

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

Answer:

 

Niyyah (intention) of performing Hajj on someone’s behalf is necessary for Hajj Badal. A person who wishes to perform Hajj on behalf of someone must first make an intention of performing Hajj Badal on someone’s behalf and then start performing the rituals.[1] The person must first complete his Umrah, then perform Hajj Badal.
