Can a Hajj-e-badal be made for a deceased person who had already done their Hajj in their lifetime?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

 

It is permissible to perform hajj on behalf of a person who has already performed his fardh hajj. If the deceased made a bequest, then the expenses will be paid from a third of his estate. If he did not make a bequest, the person who intends to make hajj for him shall bear the expenses and pass on the reward to the deceased.

 

مجمع الأنهر في شرح ملتقى الأبحر – (ج 1 / ص 309) إحياء التراث

ومن حج عن غيره بغير أمره لا يكون حاجا عنه بل يكون جاعلا ثواب حجه له ونيته عنهما لغو وللإنسان أن يجعل ثواب عمله لغيره في جميع العبادات هذا وقع في معرض العلة لما قبله

 

مناسك ملا علي قاري 454

(و لو أوصى أن يحج عنه) أي من ماله (يحج عنه بثلث ماله) أي سواء قيد الوصية بالثلث بأن قال: بثلث ماله أو أطلق أن يحج عنه

And Allah knows best
