Answered by SunniPath Answer Service Team
Has a Muslim fulfilled their Hajj obligation after serving as a medical officer of the team of doctors? Or should they perform Hajj again using their own earned money?
Wa`alaykum Assalam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu,
In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful & Compassionate
Hajj funded by parents will fulfill the mature (baligh) children’s obligation of performing Hajj. Hajj only becomes obligatory if one has the means, but if someone else pays for one’s Hajj, it is valid and one’s obligation is discharged. But, one should not ask others to fund the Hajj. It is improper for a person who has to the amount of one day’s provision to ask from others. One should wait till one acquires the wealth in order to go for Hajj. (Quoting Shaykh Faraz Rabbani)
