Giving Precedence to Getting one`s Son Married over Performing Hajj is up to Person`s Assessment

If there is a man who has saved a sum of money to perform the obligatory Hajj (i.e., Hajj for the first time), and after five years he becomes entitled to enter the randomized lottery for allocating Hajj visas. In the meantime, he has a son who is single and of marriageable age. If he gets his son married, that sum could go short and so he may not be able to perform Hajj. In this case, which takes precedence? Should he do the obligatory Hajj or get his son married?

Waiving Minors` Share in their Father`s Diyah is Forbidden

My brother engaged in a brawl with seven individuals, and died as a result. Prior to the fight, he had suffered a kidney failure and a heart clot. Moreover, he was a father of three. The question that arises here is that: are the individuals who led to the death of my brother obligated to pay the Diyah(Blood money) to his heirs, or not? May Allah reward you.
