    If you may be granted causal leave as per the rules and regulations then you should go for Hajj on causal leave only. No matter in such a case you do not get the salary of all or some days as it is not lawful to get fake medical certificate while one is not sick. It is lie, deceit and treachery which in no way is allowed in Islam.
