It's a known fact that Hajj is fard only if one is physically and financially able,
as the Qurán says it in Al-e-imran :
"In it are clear signs, the standing place of Ibrahim, and whoever enters it shall be secure, and pilgrimage to the House is incumbent upon men for the sake of Allah, (upon) **
every one who is able to undertake the journey to it
**; and whoever disbelieves, then surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above any need of the worlds." 3:97 but ,my question is
"Is Hajj permissible/allowed/halal when the government subsidizes the money required to go to Hajj?"
P.S:Hajj is subsidized in India. Ministry of Civil Aviation provides subsidy for air travel to the pilgrims through the Haj Committee of India. The amount on air travel charged per pilgrim during Haj 2014 was Rs. 35,000/-(529.874 US Dollar) whereas the actual air fare ranged from Rs. 63,750(965.13 US Dollar) to Rs. 1,63,350(2473 US Dollar) depending on the embarkation point in India.
Edit:No,its not a debt.
