QUESTION:

Salam alaykum,

I am the youngest daughter in my family.  My monther died 16 years ago with
many qadha prayers.  My only brother is not capable of either doing the
prayers himself or paying someone else due  to a handicap.  Can I do or pay
someone to the the prayers on behalf of my mother ?  This is something i
would very much like to do if it is permissible to do so.  Also what is the
best way to go about finding someone to do so and how much would one
normally  offer them ?.

Thank you 

ANSWER:

        As a rule, it is the eldest male child on whom the qaza of father's
prayers (and also the mother's prayers on basis of ihtiyat) is wajib. This
obligation on the eldest son does not prevent other members of the family
from hiring someone to perform the qaza prayer on behalf of the deceased parent.

        The best way to go about finding someone to do the qaza pray is to
contact your local organization or `alim who is willing to arrange it in
Middle East, India or Pakistan, etc. They will also let you know the cost
involved in such arrangements.
