performed Hajj with other than her mahram
reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: My mother performed the
Hajj with other than her mahram while she was over 60 years
of age. Is her Hajj correct or should I (re-) perform the
Hajj on her behalf, knowing that she has now died - may Allaah
have Mercy upon her?
If a woman performed the Hajj with other than her mahram,
then she is disobedient (to her Lord) and has committed a
sin (by doing so). This is because the Prophet (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam) forbade the woman to travel without
a mahram for Hajj or other than Hajj. As for the mother's
Hajj itself, then it is correct, inshaa.-Allaah. However,
it is with sin and we hope Allaah forgives her (for this).
