Going for Hajj on Sons expenses

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh.

Some one that I know wants to send his parents for Hajj-Inshallah- but his father is under some sort of debt from a loan that he has taken from the bank & even though the son his making his parents perform the Hajj with his own funds he thinks that it is not permissinble by ALLAH s.w.t.

Please give me an answer to this situation.

Going for Hajj on Sons expenses

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


If someone has taken debt, and if the debt is so big that after paying it, there is not enough funds to afford the Hajj pilgrimage; then the pilgrimage of Hajj is not fard for these people.


But in the above case, because the son is paying for their Hajj expenses, his parents can go to Hajj even though they have debt; and Insha Allah, Allah will accept their Hajj. There is absolutely no harm in a son bearing the expenses of his parents Hajj pilgrimage.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your Brother in Islam,
