a maid for Hajj with a group of women or a Hajj package group
reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: Is it permissible for me
to send my maid for the obligatory Hajj with a group of women
travelling with a Hajj package group (company specialising
in transporting the Hajj pilgrims)?
It is impermissible for a woman to travel for the Hajj or
other than the Hajj except with a mahram,
whether she is a maid or not, for that which the Prophet said
`alayhe wa sallam) has said:
is not permissible for a woman who believes in Allaah and
the Last Day to travel the distance of two days, except with
a mahram)), [al-Bukhaaree, volume 2, pages 35-36].
a group of women does not constitute a mahram and, likewise,
nor does the Hajj package group and this does not remove her
from that which is forbidden in the mentioned ahadeeth.
