Q 2: I live in
and my faculty is in
The distance between both is thirteen kilometers.
What is the ruling on traveling to the faculty without a Mahram (a spouse or an unmarriageable relative)?
It should be taken into consideration that I also study Shari`ah (Islamic law) with the help of a Muslim sister.
The distance you mentioned does not need a Mahram. (Part No. 17; Page No. 306) However, it is not permissible for you to ride alone with a non-Mahram (not a spouse or an unmarriageable relative) because this is a prohibited Khulwah (being alone with a member of the opposite sex). It is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“No man should be alone with a woman, for the third of them is Satan.”
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
