Son completing hajj before his parents

Q: My husband and I are living abroad. He sends money to his parents and other relatives on a monthly basis. We have not performed hajj yet but his parents are asking fro money for them to do hajj? We live in a rented house and save a little every month.

Is it permissible for them to ask for money for hajj from their son before their son does hajj himself? He and his brother are providing for his family monthly and they have enough money to do hajj but still they are asking for more.

A: The son should complete his hajj first and thereafter show kindness to his parents.

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