Is the excuse of not having enough money to go huj applicable to people in the west.
Most people here can offord to go other countries?

the requirement for hajj is once a lifetime. there are in fact *alot* of people who go to hajj from here every year.. from the US alone I read about 1000 people went to Hajj this year. the reason why one might not have gone yet is that they might be a student or still trying to save enough money to go. i don't see many rich people not going period. they go... how much benefit they get from it is something else. in fact, i see them going multiple times and sometimes wonder if it's a vacation for them? there's so much more there money could be used for -- all the starving muslims in the world for one...
