Performing Hajj on Behalf of a Mushrik and asking Allah to forgive Him


Question :
A person who never observes fasting nor prays in his life, and he makes offering to Jinn, tree, as though they are idols, and dies on his condition. Is it permissible for his relative to perform Hajj on his behalf, or ask Allah to forgive him?

Answer :
He who dies in the condition as described in the question is considered a Mushrik, who committed a major Shirk. It is not permissible to perform Hajj on his behalf, nor ask Allah to forgive him. Allah, the Exalted, says:
Performing Hajj on Behalf of a Mushrik and asking Allah to forgive Him
"It is not the Prophet nor for those who believe that they should seek forgiveness for the idolaters, even though they may be their kinsmen, after it has become clean to them that they are the people of Hell-Fire."
At-Tawbah 9:113.
The Prophet (Piece Be Upon Him) said in the authentic Hadith:
I asked my Lord to permit me to visit my mother's grave, and He permitted me, and I asked His permission to seek forgiveness for her, But He did not permit me.
"I asked my Lord to permit me to visit my mother's grave, and He permitted me, and I asked His permission to seek forgiveness for her, But He did not permit me."
Muslim no. 796.
