Which is better, marriage or Hajj?

Question

Which is better, to fulfil the obligation of Hajj or to get married, for one who is single?.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

If you fear that you may commit zina (fornication), then you should give priority to marriage over performing the obligatory Hajj and ‘Umrah. But if you do not fear that you may commit zina, then you should give priority to performing the obligatory Hajj and ‘Umrah over marriage. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength.
