Q: I am planning to go for umrah with my father who is elderly. He can walk slowly, but it would take extremely long time for him to perform the tawaafs and sa’ee walking, and he would have to stop many times to rest. Will it be permissible to take him in a wheelchair, even though he technically can walk, since this would be easier for him?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
