Q: I have sufficient money to go to do umrah and my salary is low, so it may take me many years to go for hajj. So can I go for umrah before hajj this year or I should save the money to do hajj afterwards?
A: It is better for you to save up your money in order to perform Hajj which is the obligation of a lifetime.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
