I want to do Hajj but I owe debts, and I have not seen the people who lent me money for seven years. I have tried to reach them through letters and phone calls and by asking people about them, but I have not been able to do that. I live in a country other than the one in which they live. What should I do? Seven years have gone by and I have been trying to find them, but I have not been able to do that. How can I do Hajj in this situation?.
Praise be to Allaah.
This does not mean that you cannot do Hajj, as you can pay off this debt when you find the people in question. As you are prepared to pay off the debt, this does not mean that you cannot do Hajj, but you still have to look for them and when you find them, pay off what you owe them.
And Allah knows best.
Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen (may Allah have mercy on him)
