Title: I have some money in possesion of me. who should perform HAJJ first me or my mother?

Question

I belong to a upper middle class family. I have some money in possesion of me. I wanted to perform HAJJ. Now, who should perform HAJJ first me or my mother?

Answer

Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,

If you possess the money and the money is in excess of your debts and is sufficient to perform hajj, then hajj is compulsory on you, not on your mother. You will have to perform hajj.

And Allah Ta'āla Knows Best,
