Is It Permissible for a Woman to Drive a Women-Only Taxi?
Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas
Question: In my country a new company has decided to make women-only taxis drived by women instead of men. Most of my friends and family disapproved and called it ‘haram’. Are they correct?
Answer: assalamu alaykum
It would not be accurate to state that a women driving a women-only taxi service is engaging in something impermissible (haram).
In itself there is no problem with a woman (a) driving and (b) driving other women around as a service. Both of these actions are permissible. Rather, if the service is implemented effectively, this is something that many women may find quite useful.
