Her husband sells wine and pork and she wants to go for Hajj

My husband owns a restaurant that sells wine and pork.
I am a stay at home mother of 2 young children. I want to make Hajj, Inshallah in a couple of years. My husband said he would pay for my trip b ecause I have no source of income and I don't want anyone else to raise my children.
Will it be accepted? What should I do? I know my childrenand I are young but age doesn't matter and I really need to make Hajj.Please help.

Praise be to Allaah.

We put the following question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen:

Her husband sells wine and pork; is it permissible for her to take money from him to do the obligatory Hajj?

He answered, may Allaah preserve him:

No… it is not permissible, and she is to be considered as one of those who are not able (to go for Hajj).
