Question

One of my friends told me that we cannot
perform Hajj if one or both of our parents
are alive and they have not performed it yet.
If our parents are alive, they must perform
Hajj before we do so. Otherwise, we can
perform Hajj if both of our parents have
died. Is it true? Personally, I don't believe
this. Please advise as per the Islamic
teachings.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad is
His slave and Messenger.

If a person is able to perform Hajj and his
parents could not perform it then they are
not forced to go to Hajj because they are
unable, but it is an obligation on him to
perform it because he is able to do so. It is
not a condition for Hajj that the parents
should have performed it before the son
could do so. Whenever the son is able to
perform Hajj, it is an obligation on him to
do so whether his parents have already
performed it or not, and whether they are
alive or dead.

Therefore, if you are able to perform Hajj,
you are obliged to do so immediately
according to the most preponderant opinion
of the scholars, may Allah have mercy on
them. It is forbidden for you to delay it with
the excuse that your parents have not yet
performed it.

Your friend has to stop giving baseless
Fataawa the foundation of which is guessing.

The Muslim nation is lost because of the
spread of ignorance and the spread of
people who give baseless Fataawa according
to their desires.

Allah knows best.
