Whom should he take for huj, Son of first wife (late) or second wife.
He and second wife have already went for umrah last year, this year he wants to take his second wife to hajj.
First wife wanted to go for hajj, but it was not in her nasseb, she died of kidney failure. Now the first wife’s son wants to go for hajj.
He is saying that he can only afford 2 people (him and his second wife), Does the son have right to go with him for hajj instead of his second wife. Son wants to pray for his late mother.
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
In principle, it is not necessary for the person to take his second-wife or the son of the first wife for Hajj. If the person takes his wife or son for Hajj, that will be a gesture of goodwill from his side. However, if Hajj is fardh on the second wife, then he will have to accompany her as her mahram.
And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
