He entered ihraam for ‘umrah for his daughter but she did not complete it

Question

We entered ihraam for ‘umrah along with my one year old daughter, but she did not do the rituals because of the fear of stomach diseases and the fear of exhaustion. Please note that we stipulated that our ihraam would end if there was any obstacle.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

If you entered ihraam for your daughter then she did not complete it, you do not have to do anything, because ihraam of a child is not binding, as the child is not accountable. This is the view of the Hanafis and was favoured by some of the scholars. 

See: question no. 49028 and 37995

As for the stipulation, it applies if there occurs any obstacle that prevents one from continuing, such as sickness, but fear of sickness or exhaustion is not sufficient. 

And Allaah knows best.
