As salaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. Shaykh ‘Abdullaah Al Ghudayaan (hafithahullaah) was asked: If a female would like to make hijra, does she need a mahram?
A: No, if a female would like to make hijra she does not need a mahram. This is the only time it is permissible for a female to travel without a mahram.
