Permission of lender to debtor for Hajj

Question

If a Muslim wants to perform the obligatory duty of Hajj, and he is in debt, if he seeks the permission of the person or people who loaned him the money, is his Hajj valid?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

If the situation is as described, and the person or people who loaned you the money give you permission to go for Hajj before you pay off the loan, then there is nothing wrong with your doing Hajj before you pay off the debt, and the fact that you are in debt does not affect the validity of your Hajj in this case.

 And Allaah is the Source of strength.
