Is it compulsory on a guardian (Mahram/Wali) to accompany a woman on the journey of Hajj? 

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. If a woman has enough money to pay for herself and gets accredited for haj, is it fard on her wali to accompany her even though he had made haj if he has the financial means to do so but refuses?


A. In the enquired situation, if the woman in reference has a Mahram/Wali who is capable of accompanying her to go for Hajj, he should do so. However, it will not be compulsory on him to do so.

If her Mahram/Wali does not have the capacity to accompany her to go for Hajj, she should arrange with another Mahram to accompany her to go for Hajj.
