Selling Hajj visas
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:
What is the ruling on selling Hajj visas which are obtained with great difficulty?

Praise be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for a person to take a visa for himself when he does not intend to perform Hajj. If he obtains a visa for himself and intends to go for Hajj, then he changes his mind, then he should only sell it for the same amount that he spent to obtain it. In other words, it is not permissible to obtain Hajj visas for trade purposes in order to exploit the poor Muslims and those who want to perform Hajj; rather the Muslim should help others to do good and help his Muslim brothers, not exploit them. And Allaah knows best.
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.
