Leaving one’s pregnant wife to perform nafl hajj

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My husband did hajj last year. I am pregnant and I have 2 little children. His parents who are fit and fine are going for hajj this year with his friends and family who said to take care of them. But in india no 1 is ready to take care of me and my children as the doctor suggested that I should rest. He is taking a business visa and going for hajj. Is it permissible?


A: The right thing for him is to take care of the wife.

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