In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

If your wife has a physical ailment, then you should consult with a medical doctor and take his/her opinion on her sickness. It is unfortunate that whenever you intend to go for Umrah this sickness overtakes your wife. It is the quality of a believer that he/she attributes every decision or occurrence to the will of Allah. Allah in His infinite knowledge and wisdom knows why this happens to you. You should not allow Shaytaan to deceive you by attributing your condition to other factors and loose focus of Allah. Turn your attention to Allah and beg of Him to make your journey for Umrah possible.

And Allah knows best
