Hajj-e-badal for a person who did not make wasiyyat of Hajj-e-badal

Q: I am going to perform my dads Hajj this year. My dad passed away. My dad did not make wasiyat for hajj my mum is paying for the hajj including the expenses. Can you please tell me how to make intention for him and which is the best dua for esaal-e-thawaab I can make for my dad while I am in Makkah and Madinah. 

A: The hajj will be a nafl hajj. You may make the intention of passing on the thawaab of the hajj to your deceased father. Likewise, you may make the same intention for all the tawaafs, tilaawat, zikr, etc. that their rewards be passed on to your father.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
