Q: If wedding gifts are enough to have one’s name registered for hajj but one does not know whether or not they can pay for the remaining amount and other hajj expenses in the future, is hajj obligatory for them? What about the ruling if they owe money but it is to be settled in installments or it is not yet due? If it is stipulated in the marriage contract that the husband should pay for his wife’s hajj al-tamattu‘ expenses as a part of dowry, can wedding gifts be paid for hajj, then?
A: If, apparently, your life is not affected by your going to hajj, hajj is obligatory for you. If gifts have been presented to the husband, it is his own and he can pay dowry from them.
