Spending On Hajj In Difficult Economic Times
I understand that Huqooq Ullah’s concept does require one to carry out all the obligations that are targeted toward a person’s relationship with Allah. I also totally agree with the ruling that animal sacrifice cannot be replaced by zakāh or charity.
But keeping in view the current economic problems that poor Pakistanis are facing my mind just cannot accept the thing that I spend 15 to 20 lac rupees on my Hajj while there are so many needy families that are having a difficult time managing their daily expenses. Can I spend this 15 to 20 lac rupees on charity?
My age is 48. I have never performed Hajj, but two Umrah when I was young in the 1990s.
Please guide, jazaakallah.
