Is Hajj more important than the daughterís marriage?

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.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verses 96-97:Undoubtedly the first House of Worship ever to be built for mankind is the one which is at Makkah. It was blessed, and made the center of guidance for all the peoples. In it are clear Signs; there is a spot where Ibraheem used to worship; and it is the Santuary, and whoever enters it becomes safe and secure. Allah has, therefore, a right on the people that the one, who can afford to reach the house, should perform Hajj there. And the one who disobeys (this commandment should know that) Allah is Self-Sufficient, and does not stand in need of anyone.


Hajj is obligatory duty unto every believer who is an adult, sane, healthy and has enough wealth to afford and make the journey to the Sacred House of Allah.


The availability or saving funds to get oneís daughter married has absolutely no bearing on the personís Hajj travel. Besides, Islam has laid all the financial responsibility of marriage on the man who marries your daughter. There is absolutely no financial responsibility on the girl or her family for her marriage, whereas the pilgrimage of Hajj is an obligatory duty unto every eligible believer who can afford the travel to the Sacred House of Allah Subhanah.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahís 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,
