Hajj at the expense of someone else

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:
A woman has come to Saudi Arabia and the expenses for her performing the duty of Hajj have been provided by her host. She is asking whether this Hajj will count as the obligatory Hajj of Islam, when she herself has not spent any of her own money on Hajj?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

The validity of her obligatory Hajj is not affected by the fact that she has not spent any of her own money on it, or that she has spent only a little and that most of her Hajj expenses have been paid by someone else. Based on this, if her Hajj meets all the conditions and she does all the essential parts of Hajj, then she has fulfilled the obligation of Hajj, even if someone else pays for it.

  And Allaah is the Source of strength.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
