Can I travel with a friend? Husband has fear of flying and I want to visit ziyarah places. We will drive as family. He is happy for me to explore with a friend who will travel for business and I will give her company however with Shaykhs permission
There is no such permission. It is better to make ziyarah to Allah, His angels, His Prophets and His friends in dunya and akhira by intending obedience to His commands to stay at home (al-Ahzab 33:33) and focus on emigrating away from the nafs to the Creator.
