Hajj without husband's permission
*Please appropriately reference this
fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: What is the ruling regarding a
wife who leaves to perform the obligatory (first) Hajj without
her husband's permission?
The obligatory Hajj is (only) obligatory if (all) its conditions
are satisfied and (seeking) the permission of the husband
is not from amongst them. It is not permissible for him to
prevent her, rather, it is legislated for him to assist her
in performing this obligation.
with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and
salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
