NAFL HAJJ AND UMRAH

Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) said:  “It is prohibited for a person to go for Nafl Hajj if he will not be able to observe Salaat (i.e. punctually, regularly on time). If someone has reasonable certitude that even one Salaat will become qadha along the journey, then Nafl Hajj will not be permissible for him. Such a person incurs Deeni detriment. For the sake of a Nafl act, he neglects a Fardh. Such persons instead of gaining Allah’s proximity, drift further from Him.”
Hadhrat Thanvi has made reference to only one factor of prohibition, namely Salaat becoming qadha. Besides this, there are numerous other factors to compound and emphasize the prohibition. Total intermingling of the sexes from the time one leaves home until one’s return, and gross squandering of money whilst millions of the Ummah are languishing in abject poverty and ignorance reinforces the prohibition.
