Take loan to send parents to hajj.

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:

My question is regarding the hajj payment.


This year I have two commitments 1. I have to send my parents for hajj and 2. Clear the credit amount which I have taken.

I am taking money from my friend to clear the credit payment, I will return the amount to my friend by end of this year and I have to send money to book the facilities for my parents for hajj. Can I send the money taken from my friend to book the facilities for hajj or I have to send the money which I earn. Any how I will return his amount by end of this year from my salary. Can I exchange this money in case of urgency? Please advice at the earliest.

Take loan to send parents to hajj

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Respected brother, if you are confident that you will be able to pay the loan you have taken from your friend at its agreed time from your earnings…..there is absolutely no harm if you chose or wish to utilize the money to send your parents to Hajj.


Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 5.15a

Abdullah ibn Abi 'Awfa relates: "I asked the Prophet (saws) about a man who has not performed Hajj, 'Should he not get a loan to perform Hajj?' The Prophet (saws) replied: 'No'”

What is specifically disliked and discouraged is that one who cannot afford the Hajj journey takes on a loan with the sole intention of performing the Hajj pilgrimage….but if one is blessed with enough from their Lord that they can afford their Hajj journey, and one has perchance taken on a debt for another reason….there is absolutely no harm if the person chooses to fulfill their Hajj obligation unto their Lord.


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
