Hastening to fulfill religious obligations

A: A Muslim should hasten to perform the obligatory Hajj as soon as one is able to. They do not know what impediments may arise in the coming years if they delay performing it. Allah (Exalted be He) states: 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. It was also reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated: Hasten to perform Hajj - meaning the obligatory Hajj - for none of you know the hindrances that may arise (and prevent you from performing it). (Related by Imam Ahmad) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
