Hajj Without Mehram

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Albalagh.net

Hajj Without Mehram

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai

Q.) A lady wants to perform Hajj but her husband is reluctant to accompany her. She does not have any Mahram. Is there any way she can perform Hajj? Give examples from Qur’an and Sunnah for our knowledge. [Qamar Zia Zuberi]

A.) If the lady in reference is a Hanafi, she has to be accompanied by her Mahram to perform Hajj. Her husband should be advised to assist his wife in fulfilling her Hajj. It is recorded in Tirmidhi that one Sahaabi, Radi-Allahu anhu, enquired from Rasulullah Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam about joining the Jihaad or serving as a Mahram for his wife for Hajj. Rasulullah Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam advised him to leave Jihaad and given preference to joining his wife for Hajj. And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
