Answer

(Fatwa: 651/511/D=1434)

If the income source of your son is halal and he arranges for the hajj of you and your wife then you may go for hajj, it is very good. According to Shariah it is not desirable for a girl to do a job. Yet, if she is doing any lawful job (i.e. she is not doing the job in a bank etc) then her salary is halal and the daughter herself is its owner. If she gives some money to you seeking your pleasure then you may accept it, there is no harm in it.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
