Home Q&A Hajj Incontinence and Hajj

Q: A person has not gone for Hajj yet because of following reason and is looking for practical advice to see if he can perform it: He has to urinate every 45 minutes. How can he perform Hajj in above situation considering the long lines for washrooms and also because of many hours of traveling because of slow movement of traffic? Any practical advice? Is above a valid excuse for not going for Hajj?

In our understanding this is not an excuse for him leaving out the hajj. He may put on a diaper as a precautionary measure.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
