The Hajj of the Disabled

Reference: ad-Durar an-Naadhirah fil-Fataawa al-Mu’aasirah – Page 434

Question: Is Hajj obligatory upon the disabled (incapacitated) or not?

Response: Whoever is able to perform the hajj with his wealth, but is unable to physically undertake the hajj due to a persistent [physically] prohibiting factor, then he is required to appoint someone to perform the obligatory hajj on his behalf – with the condition that the appointee has already performed hajj for himself.
