Saving to get married and go for Hajj

Q: Alhamdulilliah I am employed and in addition to my annual zakaat I make a point of giving away at least 10 percent of my money in additional sadaqah. However I am a bit confused at this point. I would like to start saving more than I currently  in order to get married and go for haj Inshallah. I know that sadaqah does not decrease wealth.

Should I continue to give the same amount as sadaqah or should I decrease a bit in order to increase my savings for these sorts of things.


A: You may decrease your sadaqah so that you may complete your fardh Hajj.
