Ask an Alim

Is Umrah before Parents allowed in Islam ?

Q:

I want to go for Umrah after my new marriage but my parents didn’t perform yet and one other thing is i have some loan like installments is it valid to perform umrah while i am paying my installments?

A:

Salaam Alaykum,

Congratulations! May Allah make this a wonderful experience for both of you. 
 
It is indeed a wonderful trip after marriage. InshaAllah your parents are able to go soon. It’s ok to go for Umra even if your parent haven’t been for one. 
Installments are based on time. So until you have time you shouldn’t be worried about having a debt. It’s perfectly fine to go for your Umra trip while you’re paying installments. 
 
Do pray for us!
