Ask an Alim

If parents have no savings can children contribute and send their parents on Hajj?


If the Parents don’t have enough of saving to go for Hajj and have a un-married Daughter. Can the other children contribute and  send them on Hajj? Is Hajj Wajib on the Parents.


Waalaykum al-Salaam

Thank you for your question.

Hajj is only obligatory for a person who can afford it. (please refer to the link below that explains the conditions for Hajj to be valid)

In your parent’s case, Hajj is not obligatory for them since they do not have enough funds for performing the act. However, children can certainly send their parents for Hajj. This act is not Obligatory on the children.
