Hajj is obligatory on every adult and sane person who fulfills the following conditions:
1- Physical ability to undertake the journey. So, those who are physically challenged are not obligated to perform hajj. However, they may depute someone else to do it on their behalf – if they have can afford it.
2- Financial ability is another essential pre-requisite. So, people with outstanding debts are exempt. Likewise, a person who cannot afford the journey or provide for his family during his absence from home is also excused.
3- In the case of a woman, she must be satisfied as regards her safety. She may, however, travel in a group of women or with close blood relations or a group comprising of a reputable group of men and women.
Almighty Allah knows best.
