If a person had amassed immense wealth made up of trading in haraam, and then repented to Allaah [from that], is it then permissible for him to perform hajj using this wealth, or donate to charity from it, or [even] get married or build a masjid using it?
Grand Mufti of the Kingdom Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh confirmed that any attempts or policies that want to derail the holy Haj rituals away from their correct course are unacceptable in Islam, and represent criminal policies in themselves, according to a report in local publication.
Whilst studying abroad, a man abandoned the prayer for a number of years, and he [also] stopped fasting for three years. When he returned back [home] to his country, he repented [to Allaah]; so should he make up the prayers and fasts [he has missed]?
Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh, who is also the chairman of the Council of Senior Scholars, has warned those who are planning to perform Haj using unfair means.
I acquired some money from haraam means, and I have since repented sincerely to Allaah. After having repented, I feared [my] wealth may be a source of loss for me, as I had also gotten married using this money. I now wish to use this money and perform ‘umrah and hajj with it, so what is the opinion of the shaykh regarding that?
What is the ruling regarding [performing] hajj without a [government-issue] permit; there are some [hajj services] groups which don’t have a [government-issue] permit – and they take along with them pilgrims who [also] don’t have a [government-issue] permit. Is such a hajj considered correct? And are these people liable for sin when they fulfill an obligation in this manner?
