Hajj is one of the pillars of Islam. All of us are aware of its importance in every Muslim’s life. What about a person who has a physical disability? Is Hajj is still an obligation upon them?
Today, there are many accessibility options for those who may be in a wheelchair or who have a physical disability. If you have a physical disability and decide that you cannot go for Hajj, then you must give money to someone so that they can make Hajj on your behalf. If you do not have the money nor the ability, then you are excused from going.
