My question is: Is it permissible for wife to travel alone from India to USA without being accompanied by Mahhram. Please do state the opinion of Hanafi maslak. Some people say it will depend on the need/condition, if so explain how shariah defines the need/condition.
Can women travel alone?
It is not allowed for a lady to travel without her close relative (Mahram). Even if there is a dire necessity, we would still have to say that doing so would be wrong. If someone does they should do taubah (repent) and ask Allah from for forgiveness.
