Son-in-law as a Mahram


Nasihah (Advice): The reward for Umrah and Hajj


Abu Hurairah Radhiallahu Anhu reports that Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “‘(Performance of one) ‘Umrah to (the performance of another) ‘Umrah atones for the sins between them, and for Al-Hajj-ul-Mabrur (an accepted Hajj) there is no reward except Jannah.” (Tirmidhi)



Question and Answer:


  1. I am a mother and my daughter will be going for Umrah with my son-law. My mother and I want to go for Umrah with them too. Can my son-in-law be a Mahram for my mother and me?


  1. A.Your son-in-law is considered a Mahram (non-stranger) to you and your mother. Hence, you and your mother may travel for Umrah with your son-in-law as your Mahram. (Majmaul-Anhur 1/323)
