Funding Someone’s Hajj With Zakaat Funds


A person had enough wealth for performing Hajj but did not perform due to negligence. Now he wants to perform his Hajj but lacks in sufficient wealth to perform Hajj though he is Sahib-e-Nisaab. Can Zakaat or Sadaqatul fitr be given to him intending to help him complete his Hajj?


Zakaat and Sadaqatul Fitr cannot be given to a Saahib-e-Nisaab, thus these funds cannot be given to a person intending to perform Haj as he does not qualify as recipient of Zakaat and Sadaqatul Fitr.
