View Full Version : Multiple Hajjs
01-20-2007, 07:06 PM
My question is in regards to going on multiple hajjs. Is it better, per se, to go to as many as possible? or maybe since you're able to pay again, pay for someone else to go? Is there a similar reward in both?

If you are able to go again, then go again.
You can pay someone, there is reward in that too, in sha Allah, but I remember Shaykh Al-Othaymeen, rahimahullah, saying that the Hajj is one Hajj. Meaning, you won't get the reward for performing Hajj, you'll get the reward for helping someone else perform it.
But only one hajj was performed, not two.
This question came up in the following scenario:
what if... a son gives money to a stranger to perform Hajj for his deceased mother?
Does the son get reward for having performed Hajj?
Does the stranger get reward for having performed Hajj?
Does the mother get reward because the Hajj is done in her name?
The answer: the hajj is only one, and it goes to the mother. The others will in sha Allah get a lot of reward, but it is doubtful to call their reward "hajj".
(I've paraphrased what he said, rahimahullah).
