Performing Hajj with ill-gotten money

Q 2: What is the ruling on the one who performs Hajj using ill-gotten money? Drug traders buy Hajj tickets with the revenues from selling drugs and send these tickets to their parents who know the source of this money. Is this Hajj acceptable or not?

A: Performing Hajj with ill-gotten money does not mean that the Hajj is not valid, but the person is sinning because he acquired it unlawfully. However, it reduces the reward of Hajj but does not invalidate the Hajj.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
