Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

The sister of Uqbah ibn Amir took a vow that she would perform hajj on foot, and she was unable to do so. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: Allah is not in need of the walking of your sister. She must ride and offer a sacrificial camel.

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ حَفْصِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ السُّلَمِيُّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي قَالَ، حَدَّثَنِي إِبْرَاهِيمُ، - يَعْنِي ابْنَ طَهْمَانَ - عَنْ مَطَرٍ، عَنْ عِكْرِمَةَ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، ‏:‏ أَنَّ أُخْتَ، عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ نَذَرَتْ أَنْ تَحُجَّ، مَاشِيَةً وَأَنَّهَا لاَ تُطِيقُ ذَلِكَ، فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏:‏ ‏

"‏ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَغَنِيٌّ عَنْ مَشْىِ أُخْتِكَ، فَلْتَرْكَبْ وَلْتُهْدِ بَدَنَةً ‏"
