Performing Hajj

Question:

I want to perform Hajj, but am not sure if i need to pay off my Ijara transaction or sell my home to clear my debts?

Answer:

Good news, you Ijara transaction qualifies for Hajj, the Ijara lease does not create a liability in the same sense that a traditional mortgage does, see Ijara Hajj Qualification for a Fatwa on the subject.
