Who should pay for the one who is going to take care of a handicapped person when going for 'Umrah?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
   I am a handicapped Muslim who will be going to perform Umrah this year, InshAllah.  I need my brother to meet me in Jeddah to take me to Mecca and Madinah.  He wants to perform Umrah too and insists on paying his ticket although I will pay for our hotel, meals, and expenses.  Can he pay for his ticket or must I pay for his ticket as well as all his expenses since he's coming to help me?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

There is nothing wrong with you paying for his ticket, or with him paying for his ticket himself, as he is insisting on doing so and he is seeking reward from Allaah. So let him pay, and he will also be rewarded for taking care of you, in sha Allah. 

You will also be rewarded for paying the rest of the expenses for both of you. And Allaah is the Source of help.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
