Performing hajj on behalf of a paralytic son
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: I have a paralytic son, and am thinking about him doing hajj, because if he was to do the hajj himself, then I fear that he will suffer harm. So is it permissible for me to do the hajj on his behalf?

Response: If the son is (indeed) paralytic as you say, then it is permissible for you to do the obligatory hajj on his behalf if you have already done the hajj for yourself.
