Question;

Hajj became obligatory on a person but he did not perform it. He then
passed away without making a bequest for it to be performed on his
behalf. Can anyone perform hajj-e-badal on his behalf?

Answer;

If a person wants to perform hajj-e-badal on behalf of a deceased out
of his own good will, then – insha Allah – there is hope that the
deceased will be absolved of his obligation.

Fatawa Mahm’diyyah:

If an heir performs hajj from his share of the inheritance, without the
deceased having made a bequest, or the heir performs it from his side
with his own money, then it is hoped that the deceased will be freed
from accountability.1

Allah ta‛ala knows best.
