Should I Delay Hajj to Help Fund a Sibling’s Wedding?

I pray this finds you in the best of health states.

No, the obligation of performing hajj certainly takes precedence over saving money for a sibling’s wedding. Be polite and respectful with your parents, but fulfill your duties to Allah Most High.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “There is no obedience to creation if it entails disobedience to the Creator.” [Tabarani, Mu`jam Kabir; Musannaf Ibn Abi Shayba]

Having said that, be creative and come up with other ways to support and participate in your sibling’s wedding. Show your parents and the rest of the family your full enthusiasm and joy at the blessed occasion, and be prophetic in your love and treatment of them.

And Allah knows best.
