Hajj is not compulsory on such a person.

We know Maulāna Ilyas Sidyot of Saskatoon, SK. He is a prominent Ālim serving the Muslim Community with devotion and dedication. He will know the Ulāma of Calgary. You may contact him on imamsask@yahoo.ca . You may also benefit from him directly.


And Allah knows best

Wassalaamu `alaykum
