Mahrams for women who need to travel

Question ID: 28476

Asalaam Mu Alaikum

For research purposes for an article on Indian women in senior positions, please could you clarify the concept of a Mahram for women that need to travel both local as well as abroad.
If it is necessary what happens when there isn’t someone availble as a mahram.

It would be appreciated if you could give a few notes that will be quoted if this is ok as this will be published in the journals. i don’t want to give the wrong infomation to all the muslim sisters out there.

We, as a rule do not encourage females to work. Females must travel with their Mahraams

See on our site a book;- "Laws pertaining to a Musafir"  Quotation available there.
