Moharam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Can My wife’s sister perform Haj With us!
She is a widow
In short Can I be Moharam for her

Answer
Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

No, it is not permissible to be a Mahram for her, as sister in-laws are not permanent Mahram.

If she has any other Mahram relatives (i.e. father, son etc,) to accompany her then it will be permissible. If however, she does not have any Mahram relatives to accompany her then it is not permissible for her to go for Hajj.

Even if, till her death no Mahram is available, she cannot go for Hajj, rather it becomes Fardh upon her to make Wasiyyat (will) of a Hajj-e-Badal. (Ahsanul Fataawa part 4 pg.532)

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
