However, you should not make their errors a cause for you to publicize them and stop obeying them, even if they may be oppressive and unjust or sinful, so long as they do not commit clear disbelief.</p>

<p>I am a married woman for forty years. I’ve been asking my husband to perform Hajj and he agrees. However, every time he goes to perform Hajj or `Umrah he changes his mind and prevents me from accompanying him to take care of his sheep and cattle. Although he performed Hajj more than five times, he refuses my request to travel with my sons in law. Is it permissible to travel for Hajj with my son in law in spite of my husband’s rejection?</p>

 <p><h3 id="question">Question:</h3>
<p>We would like to inform you that many of our Sunni Muslim brothers who live on the Persian coast are desirous of performing the Islamic obligation of Hajj. The problem is that they cannot travel in the company of the Shiite Iranians for fear of disputes that might occur during the journey. In addition, the neighboring Arab governments do not allow them to travel via their airways. Is it permissible for them to send expenditures of the journey to other Muslim brothers of another country to perform Hajj on their behalf? Please clarify this matter as you issue your fatwa. May Allah reward you.</p>
