Company Sponsored Hajj

Shortened Question:

Will the obligations of Hajj be fulfilled if it is sponsored by one’s employer?


My wife and I are executive members of our company. We have the necessary means to perform our Hajj. However, we were selected by the company’s Hajj sponsorship programme.

Will the obligations of Hajj upon us be fulfilled if we accept this package?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If the company pays for the Hajj expenses, the Hajj would be valid


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
