Question

I am not sure but can you please help me? My wife and I are planing to go for hajj this year inshallah. But my wife grandmother also wants to go with us. My question is that can she go with us because I'm not her Mahram. I thank you for your time

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

 

You will be a Mahram to your wife’s Grandmother, hence it will be permissible for her to go along with you’ll for Haj.
