Performing hajj when one has the means


1. Last year, I had enough money for hajj while no time to perform hajj. So I intended to do hajj this year by saving the amount. However, I utilized the maximum amount for the ongoing construction of our house since we are a big family. And so, I couldn't afford to go for hajj. Do I need to do hajj at any cost?

A: When Allah Ta`ala gives you the means you should go.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
