Praise be to Allaah.
The proxy does not have to do Hajj from the same town as the
one on whose behalf he is doing Hajj, and he does not have to enter ihraam
from his meeqaat, rather the proxy should enter ihraam from his own meeqaat.
There is nothing wrong with performing Hajj from Jeddah on behalf of a woman
from Yemen, and the proxy may enter ihraam from Jeddah.
The Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas was asked about a
man from Africa who wanted to delegate someone to do Hajj on behalf of his
mother, and they replied:
It is permissible for the person mentioned to appoint a
trustworthy person from Makkah or elsewhere to do Hajj on behalf of his
mother if she is deceased or is unable to do Hajj herself, because she is
elderly or sick with no hope of recovery.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send
blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.
