Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1193 I have heard that women over the age of 60 do not need a Mahram in order to perform Hajj/ Umrah. Is this true? Please clarify this issue.
Irrespective of age, Muslim women need a Mahram with them when they go on long journeys such as Hajj. If anything, older women need more help and support from others, not less. When performing religious duties of great significance such as Hajj, Muslims should ensure they act upon Islamic teachings. Otherwise, the worship is void of blessings and reward.
