Is it permissible for a Muslim woman to perform the obligatory Hajj with trustworthy women,
if it is difficult for her to be accompanied by one of her male relatives, and her father is dead? (Part No. 11; Page No. 92) Can her mother accompany her to perform the Faridah (obligatory act), or her paternal aunt, maternal aunt, or anyone else that she chooses accompany her to perform the obligatory Hajj?
The correct opinion is that it is not permissible for her to travel to Hajj without her husband or a male Mahram (spouse or permanently unmarriageable relative). It is not permissible for her to travel with trustworthy women or trustworthy men who are not her Mahrams, or with her paternal aunt, maternal aunt, or her mother. She must only travel with her husband or a male Mahram. If she does not have anyone to accompany her from them, Hajj is not obligatory on her as long as this circumstance continues, because she is lacking the Shar‘y (Islamic legal) prerequisite of ability. Allah (Exalted be He) says (what means):
And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka‘bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allâh, for those who are able to undertake the journey.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
