Hajj with outstanding fasts

Fatwaa ID: 1152

Assalamualaikum Mufti saheb,
Can I go for Hajj if I have outstanding fasts? Will my hajj be valid?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Outstanding fasts do not affect the validity of one’s Hajj nor is its obligation dependent on that. The obligation of Hajj is dependent on other conditions, mainly financial. In the enquired situation, if Hajj is fardh on you or you wish to undertake a nafl Hajj journey, you should go. The outstanding fasts should not hold you back. Make up the qadhaa fasts once you return from Hajj.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
