Meeting family before going for hajj

Q: Is there any authenticity in going to greet everyone before leaving for hajj?

A: No. However, the shariah has encouraged healthy good family relationship. Hence, in the spirit of maintaining good family ties this practice will not be discouraged.

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