How many damm-e-shukr for hajj-e-badl?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a person is making a Hajj-e-Badl should he make 1 Damm-e-Shukr or should he make 2, 1 on behalf of himself & 1 on behalf of the person for whom he is making Hajj?


A: It depends on the type of hajj he is making. If he is making ifraad then he does not have to make on behalf of the person he is making hajj for. And when it is hajj-e-badal then there is no question of him making dam-e-shukr for himself.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
