Who Can Perform Hajj in Islam??Answer: In Hadiths:
“Whosoever dies without performing Hajj while he is not under some difficult circumstances – whereby it’s impossible to go for Hajj. Or is not allowed to leave because of an unjust ruler, or is chronically sick – or seriously sick during the Hajj season – then let him die if he wants as a Jew or a Christian.” [Related by ad-Daarimi and al-Bayhaqi]He should: 1) Physically and mentally perfect 2) Must be able to afford all the expenses for this pilgrimage. Allah Says in Quran:
“And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka’bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision, and residence)” (Aal ‘Imraan 3:97)3) So, one has to fulfill all of their duties and responsibilities. Allah Commanded him according to Islam ( good development of their children, give them a good education, fulfill their legal demands, get them married, etc.). 4) It is not obligatory to the slave, so they should be free. 5) Be a Muslim.
Quran Says About Hajj:In the Quran, Allah says:
“And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger.” (al-Tawbah 9:54)
Age For Hajj:6) Be old enough; non-pubescent children don’t need to perform it. The Holy Prophet (SAW) said:
“There are three kinds of people who are not held responsible for their actions: The sleeping person until he wakes up, the child until he reaches the age of puberty, and the mentally ill until he becomes sane.” [Related by the Five and ad-Daarimi]So, all Muslim women and men must acknowledge all the rules and regulations before performing this pilgrimage.
