Son-in-law travelling as a Mahram for his wife’s mother and grandmother

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. I am a mother and my daughter will be going for Umrah with my son-law. My mother and I want to go for Umrah with them too. Can my son-in-law be a Mahram for my mother and me?


A. Your son-in-law is considered a Mahram (non-stranger) to you and your mother (daughter’s mother and grandmother). Hence, you and your mother may travel for Umrah with your son-in-law as your Mahram. (Majmaul-Anhur 1/323)
