A pilgrim died in ‘Arafah; is there any need to complete Hajj on his behalf or to do it all over again on his behalf?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
A man died during the Hajj after standing at ‘Arafah. Is there any need to complete Hajj on his behalf or to do it all over again on his behalf?.

Praise be to Allaah.
Hajj need not be done on his behalf, because he has done what was required of him. When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was asked about a man who was thrown by his she-camel in ‘Arafah, he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to them: “Wash him with water and lotus leaves, and shroud him in his two garments, and do not put perfume on him or cover his head, for he will be raised on the Day of Resurrection reciting the Talbiyah.” And he did not say to complete the Hajj on his behalf.
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.
