Q 7: What is the ruling on a wife’s traveling to perform the obligatory Hajj without her husband’s permission?

A: The obligatory Hajj is Wajib (obligatory) when the conditions of ability are fulfilled. The husband’s permission is not one of them. It is not permissible for him to forbid her; rather, it is prescribed for him to cooperate with her in fulfilling this duty.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
