As-salaam alaikum, I have been reading hajj is obligatory to one who is "ABLE TO" perform it, OR "physically and financially CAPABLE OF performing Hajj"! I'm more interested in the financial "capability" would like to know if there are any criteria in the sharia/sunna (except for debt status) which i can use to determine my financial capacity to perform hajj? By criteria I'm mean something (though maybe not as precise but) similar to that of income zakath, where by I'm obliged to pay zakath if i meet a certain criteria. So, how do I know if I am capable and thus hajj is obligatory on me now?
As-salamu `alaykum. There are different types of Tawaf around the Ka`bah; what are they and what is the ruling on each one?
Dear respected sheikhs, as-salamu`alaykum.Many of the Sunni Muslim brothers who live on the coast of the Persian Gulf are longing to perform the Islamic obligation of Hajj. The problem is that they cannot travel via the travel agencies run by Iranian Shiites for fear of disputes that might occur during the journey. In addition, the neighboring Arab governments do not allow them to travel via their airways. Is it permissible for them to send the expenses of the journey to Muslim brothers from another country, so that they would perform Hajj on their behalf? May Allah reward you.Jazakum Allah khayran
