Can he do Hajj when he owes debts that he is able to pay off?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I want to do Hajj but I owe debts, and I have not seen the people who lent me money for seven years. I have tried to reach them through letters and phone calls and by asking people about them, but I have not been able to do that. I live in a country other than the one in which they live. What should I do? Seven years have gone by and I have been trying to find them, but I have not been able to do that. How can I do Hajj in this situation?.

This does not mean that you cannot do Hajj, as you can pay off this debt when you find the people in question. As you are prepared to pay off the debt, this does not mean that you cannot do Hajj, but you still have to look for them and when you find them, pay off what you owe them.
And Allah knows best.
