Hajj at the expense of the ruler

Q 3: What is the ruling on a person who performs Hajj on the expense of a ruler? A ruler may give his subjects some money and tell them: Go to Hajj with this money. Is it permissible for them to perform Hajj with it? If they do perform Hajj with it, will that count as the obligatory Hajj? I hope your answer will be supported with proofs.

A: It is permissible for them to do that and their Hajj is valid, because of the general relevant proofs in this regard. (Part No. 11; Page No. 37) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
