[Q 234] If a woman does not have a mahram to accompany her, what is the ruling regarding Hajj for her?


My husband is not able to travel with me for Hajj this year due to his work circumstances. He can go next year. I can ask my father to go with me and I’ll bear his travel costs but he is in his 70s and has health issues so it might be very difficult for him to travel. Can I perform Haj next year when my husband is ok to travel or will I be sinful for delaying it? My husband has performed his Fard Haj already.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


If your husband cannot go for Hajj with you this year due to his work and your father also cannot travel due to illness or he will have to face immense hardship by traveling, and if there’s no other Mahram available to accompany you for Hajj, then in such a case, you have the permission to postpone/delay the performance of Hajj.
