Performing additional voluntary Hajj on behalf of my Mother
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: My mother performed the Hajj seven times, so is it permissible for me myself to perform (another) hajj on her behalf?

Response: Yes, it is permissible for you to perform (another) hajj on her behalf - an eighth hajj or more - and this is from kindness (and honouring) towards her, and there is great reward in that for you if you have (already) performed the (obligatory) hajj for yourself.
