Hiring someone to offer prayers

Q:

Assalam-o-alikum. I have a question, please forgive if it's an ignorant question. Before I ask, it's not about me. If someone is alive and kicking, no problem in praying. Can they hire someone (paying in cash) to offer their compulsory prayers on their behalf?

A:

Alaykum Salaam

As long as one is alive, one has to fulfill their religious obligations themselves.
