Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam MalikPerson who performs hajj for someone else (who is dead), it is not a condition for him that he should have performed had himself. This is only for a dead person. In this view, hajj for a person who is living is not validThey objected to the tradition of Ibn Abbas as it was narrated as mawquf up to Ibn Abbas(i.e. the isnad (chain) did not contain the name of the Companion’s disciple).
Imam ShafiIt is a condition that he should have performed the obligation for himself. if a person, who had not performed hajj for himself, did perform hajj for another it would be converted to a personal performance.Tradition of Ibn Abbas
