Not being obliged to perform Hajj unless having sufficient money for it

Q 1: I want to perform Hajj, but my low salary, the expenses of my wife, and the requirements of life prevent me and make me always preoccupied. I am trying to collect a sum of money to buy a piece of land. In Sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills) I will save money to perform Hajj with my wife.

A: You are not obliged to perform Hajj unless you have money which would be sufficient for performing Hajj. (Part No. 10; Page No. 25) You should have enough money to cover your needs and repay your debts. Allah (Exalted be He) says: 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.
