Umrah without Mahram


How can a lady without a mehram perform Hajj or Umrah? Is there any other way? Thank you.


wa `alaykum salam,
Hajj in the first place is not obligatory upon a very young lady with no mahram. If she feels an urgency she can send a badal to perform hajj on her behalf. Some scholars allow young women to go in the company of other women. Allah knows best.
