428 Hajj vs committments What if I am able to perform hajj this year while I am a student at the University or high school and it happens that the time of travelling for hajj conflicts with my final exams such that the trip for hajj would lead to my failure and loss of a school year, which causes me extreme material and emotional difficulty.
518 our Hajj obligation Al Salamu Alaykom,

Many of us yearn to go to Hajj to complete our duty, and to also have a fresh start through having our sins removed by Allah, however sometimes it becomes difficult (I understand its not an excuse, but sometimes visa issues, health problems, or financial burdens come in the way), and unfortunately some people leave this world without going to hajj, and therefore their family members or friends go on behalf of them. Also a lot of elders and scholars say no matter what conflicts or barriers one may think they have, if Allah has invited them to His home, then they will end up going. Some people try every year and cannot go, and some people try once and mashAllah they end up going on the pilgrimage.

So my question is, if someone passes away without going to hajj, and someone goes on behalf of them after, what happens to that persons sins? Are they removed, or is it just that the duty has been completed? What if this person always had the intention on going but was not able to, and then someone goes on behalf of them? What happens to the sins in that case? It makes me ponder a lot because sometimes actually being able to go to hajj could be seen as a qisma, and at the same time our life span has been written for us, so could it be interpreted that some individuals do not have the qisma of going to hajj themselves, instead the duty is completed by someone going on behalf of them? And if that is the case, then would it be that person's qisma that their sins are not removed through the hajj pilgrimage?

InshAllah my curiosity for this topic does not portray me as questioning Allah's qisma for us or Allah's acceptance of our hajj, on the contrary InshAllah Allah knows my intention is purely for learning purposes. Also I apologize if this question is a bit long and confusing. I highly appreciate any input you may have.

Jazakum Allah Kheir & Thank you for your time.
