Is it permissible for the debtor to perform Hajj?
We heard that it is not permissible before repaying his debts to creditors. Is performing Hajj obligatory only for those who are married, or it is obligatory upon all adults ?
(Part No. 11; Page No. 48)
If the debtor is able to pay back his debts along with the costs of Hajj and still repay his debts, or if creditors permit him to perform Hajj before paying the debts, then Hajj is permissible. Otherwise, it is not permissible. However, if he performs it, his Hajj will be valid.
Hajj is obligatory for the Mukallaf (person meeting the conditions to be held legally accountable for their actions) who is able to perform Hajj, be he married or not, because of the inclusiveness of Allah's Statement:
And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka‘bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allâh, for those who are able to undertake the journey.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
