**Summary:**Let $H^p$ denote the Lebesgue space $L^p$ for $p>1$ and the Hardy space $H^p$ for $p\le 1$. For $0<p,q,r<\infty$, we study $H^p \times H^q \rightarrow H^r$ mapping properties of bilinear operators given by finite sums of products of Calder\' on-Zygmund operators on stratified homogeneous Lie groups. When $r\le 1$, we show that such mapping properties hold when a number of moments of the operator vanish. This hypothesis is natural and the conditions imposed are the minimal required for any operator of this type to map into the space $H^r$. Our proofs employ both the maximal function and atomic characterization of $H^p$. We also discuss some applications.
