Traveling for Hajj with ones nephew

Fatwaa ID: 2128

Assalamualaikum Mufti Sb. Will it be permissible for a woman to travel with her sister, sister’s son, and sister’s husband for Hajj. There is a mahram present to accompany her (the nephew ) but there is also a non-mahram present (sister’s husband)

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The biological nephew of a woman is a mahram to her. If he is baaligh, he may accompany her in travels. In the enquired situation, it will be permissible for the woman in question to travel with her nephew for Hajj even though others will be present in the group. She should obviously ensure that the laws of hijaab and inter-gender interactions are maintained with her sister’s husband.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
