Details of Hajj-e-Badal are lengthy which I have compiled in a separate treatise named Minhaj-ul-Khayr-fil-Hajj-i-‘anil-Ghayr’. The same may be consulted in need. Its necessary selected precepts are however given here for the information of common people.
Rule Of Action
Suppose a person fell under the obligation of Fardh Hajj and he found the period in which Hajj is performed. But he did not perform Hajj for some reason or other. Later on, he had some excuse becuase of which he was unable to perform Hajj personally. For example he fell ill with such ailment as he had no hope of recovery. He became blind or crippled or he was too weak to undertake a journey owing to old age. Now it is Fardh on him to depute someone to perform Hajj on his behalf or to make a will to the effect that Hajj-e-Badal may be arranged to be performed on his behalf from his funds after his death.

At the time of leaving Madina, offer two Rak’ats of Prayers in Masjid-e-Nabavi and then pay a Salam in front of the sacred Mausoleum and pray to Allah that He may render your return journey easy for you and take you to your family in peace and safety. He may guard you against the evils of both the worlds and make you lucky enough to be present again in Madina. He may not render this presence of yours as your last presence.
“(And Allah’s help is sought and He is trusted in, and the end of our invocation is “All praise to Allah the cherisher and sustainer of the worlds).”
By moving aside at an arm’s length you should thereafter pay Salam to Hazrat Umar Faroque.
“Peace be with you O Commander of the Faithful, Umar Faroque by whom Allah added glory to Islam ! Allah made you the Leader of the Muslims, while He chose you as alive and as dead. May Allah grant you a good reward on behalf of the people of Muhammad.”
Here as well a decrease or an increase in the words depends upon your own choice. However, pay Salam on behalf of the persons who made such a request to you and then move a bit forward and say : Read more... (683 words, estimated 2:44 mins reading time)
Thereafter, by moving aside at an arms length pay Salam to Hazrat Abu-Bakr Siddique :-
“Peace be with you, O Caliph of the Messenger of Allah, his Companion in the cave, his co-traveller in his journeys and the trustee of his secrets Abu-Bakr Siddique !
May Allah grant you a good reward on behalf of the people of Muhammad.”
When you enter Masjid-e-Nabavi you should step in with your right footstep forward while reciting Darood Sharif and
“O Allah ! Open for me the gates of Thy mercy.” Read more... (222 words, estimated 53 secs reading time)
Next to Hajj the highest pre-eminence and the greatest blessings lie in paying a visit to the most sacred mausoleum of the greatest Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him), the beloved Messanger of Allah (Peace be upon him). The love and respect to the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him), in fact, stands as the prerequisites of Iman and as such one must feel natural urge as well towards the fact that on reaching the sacred territories one does not come back without paying a visit to the Holy Mausoleum. Furthermore, attendance before the sacred mausoleum and Praying Darood-o-Salam in front there of bear so great a reward and blessing that cannot be possibly achieved by paying Darood-o-Salam from far off places.

Rule Of Action
If Rami for one day in full is abandoned or most of the pebbles are abandoned, a Dam will be Wajib. For instance, a person abandoned eleven pebbles in the Rami of the first day and performed it with only ten pebbles, a Dam would be obligatory. If he abandoned the Rami of more than one day or full four days, in that case as well only one Dam would stand obligatory (Zubda).
Rule Of Action
The Rami of the 13th Zilhijja stands obligatory only when the dawn of the 13th appears in Mina. In this case as well, if a person abandoned the Rami of the 13th Zilhijja, a Dam would be obligatory (Zubda). Read more... (439 words, estimated 1:45 mins reading time)
Rule Of Action
Suppose a Mufrid or a Qarin or a Mutamatte got his head shaven before Rami or suppose a Qarin, or a Mutamatte got his head shaven before offering sacrifice, or suppose a Qarin or a Mutamatte offered sacrifice before Rami ; in all such cases a Dam would be obligatory, because a proper arrangement was obligatory to perform these practices. For a Mufrid however, this arrangement of performance is obligatory only in Rami and Halq (having his head shaven) as he is not obliged to offer a sacrifice. On the other hand, for a Qarin this arrangement is obligatory to perform Rami, sacrifice and Halq. He should first perform Rami, then offer sacrifice and then should have his head shaven. In case of priority or delay a Dam would be obligatory.
If a person abandoned Waqof-e-Muzdalifa without any excuse, a Dam would be obligatory. In case he abandoned it out of some excuse ; for instance a woman or very old person or a weak person abandoned it due to rush of people, nothing would be obligatory (Ghunya).
