Q: My sister performed Hajj without her husband's permission. He works in the police of Makkah Al-Mukarramah. When I passed by him at his workplace to inform him, he agreed, as he cannot accompany her. She was accompanied by her 18 year old brother. Is the Hajj performed by this woman valid orBatil (null and void)? I did not know of this matter except after she went. This woman is from the desert and does not know that this act is Haram (prohibited) and now she is confused. Please, advise us, may Allah reward you with the best.

A: If the case is as you have mentioned, her Hajj is valid for her husband's permission is not necessary to perform an obligatory act.

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