Women driving cars

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Women driving cars

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

It will be permissible for women to drive cars if there is a genuine need, for example, the husband cannot drive or there is an emergency, there is no danger to the woman, the rules of hijaab are fully observed (which is her whole body including her face besides her hands and feet) and if she is driving without the company of mahrams then it should be within 48 miles.

Only Allah Knows Best
