Trading in tobacco and the validity of Hajj by someone in this trade

Q: A person who trades in tobacco has made a large fortune out of this trade. He has performed Hajj from the money he earns from this trade. Is his Hajj valid, and why? What is the ruling on earning money through this trade? Is it lawful?

A: Tobacco is unlawful and earning money from selling, manufacturing, trading in, or growing tobacco is also unlawful. Whoever performs Hajj from such money and performs the rituals of Hajj, it will be sufficient for him, yet he is guilty of using unlawful money.
