Question

 

Is it permissible to perform Hajj using money paid out via a compensation claim? Money was paid out by NHS after accepting negligence

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

 

Answer

 

The money from the NHS for the husband’s death will be permissible to take. This money, however, will be distributed amongst all the heirs including the wife and daughter of the deceased. This can be derived from the order of the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam that the wife of Ashyam Dababi will inherit from his blood money (diyah). (Durre Mandhuud p.95 v.5)

 

Regarding your question, it will be permissible for you to go for Hajj with the compensation money. The money received is considered to be halal.
