Parents paid for Hajj

Fatwaa ID: 1029

If an adult female go for hajj with her parents while not possessing the means to (her parents paid for everything), is her hajj fulfilled for even when she does eventually posses the means to?

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

If one’s parents pay for his/her Hajj and he/she is baaligh, then Hajj will be valid and complete. It will suffice as Hajj of Islam. He/she will not be obligated to perform Hajj again with his/her money. This is different from the case of a minor child. A minor child will have to repeat it later on when he becomes mature and financially able.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
