    Making Hajj

    Report bad ads?

    Hello! I am a recent convert to Islam. (I have practiced for a while but I foolishly left). I have a question about making hajj. I am a transgender man. My physical sex is female, but my mind and heart are male. I believe Allah gave me this for a reason. Anyway, I was wondering if I would be able to make my pilgrimage. I am not sure about the law on transgender people in Saudi. I present completely as male, I have a deep voice/beard/etc.

    Having more features of a male makes you a man, so you will be treated as such, I am not sure whether you mean you had an op for gender change or not.

    But I would say please consult with scholars for final say.

    And I hope you consider coming back to Islam again.

    Asalamualaikum sister,
    You cannot change your chromosomes, nor your private parts. No mater how much hormones you take, you cannot change your sex. Making Hajj. Allah doesn't make mistakes, transition back and accept who you really are. There are females out there with beards but being male is beyond just having a beard and your physical appearance. It's on a psychological and biological level. It's best if you return back to female and make hajj.
