Hajj if one does not have the means

Q: I have taken my parents for Umrah with me at my expense. They have no source of incomes and I fully support them. I will InshAllah take them for Hajj when I can afford it. Is Hajj compulsory on them?


A: Since they do not have the means it is not compulsory.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
