Sheikh `Abdul-Majeed Subh, a prominent Azharite scholar, states: The one who did not perform Hajj deliberately while he is physically and financially able to perform it and died without performing it, will be regarded as people following a religion that has not the obligation of Hajj.

However, we’d like to draw Muslims attention that we do not judge someone just because we know that he did not perform Hajj. He may have an excuse and we do not know it. It is also permissible for the relative of someone who did not perform Hajj to perform it on his behalf and their Hajj on his behalf is permissible. Also, we should not occupy our minds with things that do not concern us. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “Part of a person’s being a good Muslim is his leaving alone that which does not concern him.”
