My grandmother passed away and she never performed hajj.

Q) My grandmother passed away and she never performed hajj. 
After her death, we gathered her jewellery and her money 
at bank and found that her wealth was sufficient for her 
to perform hajj. Is it compulsory for us to perform hajj 
on her behalf?
A) Know that the condition for hajj to be farz on a lady, 
that during any hajj period of her life, she had not only 
the money to pay for her own hajj, but she should be 
wealthy enough to sponsor her mahram`s hajj. If your 
grandmother`s surplus assets(jewellery,cash, business 
stock,etc) could afford for two hajj package, then only it 
would have been compulsory for her to perform hajj.
Should hajj have been farz on her and she never performed 
it, then it was farz on her to make somebody make hajj for 
her on her behalf during her lifetime or else it was wajib 
for her to write a will to errand somebody to do hajj on 
her behalf after her death.
If she made any verbal wish or written will during her 
life, then it would be compulsory for the heirs to fulfil 
her will from her estate. The wasiyah or the will to 
errand somebody to perform hajj on her behalf after death 
will be valid up to the limit of one third of the whole 
estate. If ever the hajj package expenses exceed one third 
of the estate, then the will not be fulfilled unless the 
heirs accept to give from their shares. Else the amount of 
money of the will may be given to someone who accept to 
make her hajj on that limited amount. Wallahou a`lam 
bissawaab.
