Praise be to Allaah.
It is not
permissible for a woman to travel without a mahram, even if she is
travelling for the obligatory Hajj or obligatory ‘Umrah, because of the
report narrated by al-Bukhaari (1729) and Muslim (2391) from Ibn ‘Abbaas
(may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: The Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No woman should travel except with a
mahram, and no man should enter upon her unless there is a mahram with her.”
A man said: “O Messenger of Allaah, I want to go out on such and such a
campaign, and my wife wants to go for Hajj.” He said: “Do Hajj with her.”
to the naafil Hajj, a woman is not allowed to travel for that without a
mahram according to the majority of scholars, and some narrated that the
scholars were unanimously agreed on this point.
that a group needs a female doctor to travel with them and that there is no
time to look for another doctor, does not make it permissible for you to
travel with them without a mahram. How can a person draw closer to his Lord
by doing Hajj or helping others by means of disobedience?
We ask Allaah to guide you and make you steadfast.
And Allaah knows best.
