A qualitative research approach through interviews along with a documents review was used to collect data and achieve the research objectives. The results of the analysis show that there are challenges in the Hajj fund management system in terms of regulation, which are the issuance of Law Number 8 of 2019, about the Management of Hajj and Umrah that regulates different things for the same substance in Law Number 34 of 2014 about Hajj Financial Management. This resulted in the unclear relationship and flow of Hajj financial management related to the implementation of the Hajj pilgrimage between two related institutions, which are the Ministry of Religion and the BPKH. In addition, regarding the financial sustainability of the Hajj in the practice of providing subsidies for the implementation of the Hajj, it can be stopped gradually. If the subsidy system is to be continued, it will make Hajj finances unsustainable and not in accordance with sharia principles and justice. This study is the first of its kind to examine the financial sustainability of the Hajj Financial Management Agency (BPKH) in Indonesia. In addition to being a reference for future researchers, this study could also serve as an impetus for policymakers to design strategies that overcome the weaknesses of the Hajj financial management system and the Hajj fund subsidy systemHajj fundssubsidy system.
