Title: Is Hajj compulsory or Fardh for a woman who has such an amount of gold that Zakaat becomes Fardh upon her and she can cover Hajj expenses?

Question

Is Hajj compulsory or Fardh for a woman who has such an amount of gold that Zakaat becomes Fardh upon her and she can cover Hajj expenses?

Answer

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You state that you do have sufficient wealth to cover your Hajj expenses; therefore Hajj is obligatory on you.

 

However, you would have to be accompanied by a Mahram when making the journey for Hajj.

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
