Praise be to Allaah.
Allaah has enjoined Hajj upon every adult who is able to do
it once in a lifetime; anything more than that is voluntary and an act of
worship by means of which one may draw closer to Allaah. There is no proof
that voluntary Hajj is to be done a specific number of times, rather that
depends on the individual’s financial situation and condition of health, and
the situation of the relatives and poor people around him, and the different
interests of the ummah in general and whether he is playing a role in
leading the ummah or supporting it with his wealth, and his status in the
community, whether it will benefit them more if he stays home or travels for
Hajj, and so on. Each person should look at his own situation and what is
best for him, and give precedence to that.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send
blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

But he should not let five years pass without doing Hajj
again, if he can, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) said: “Allaah says: ‘How is it that I have granted good health and
ample means of provision to My slave, and five years pass without him coming
to visit My (House)?’ Narrated by Ibn Hibbaan (960) and classed as saheeh by
al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah with all its isnaads (1662).
And Allaah knows best.
