Massallah pertaining to being the Mahram for ones mother inlaw

Question ID: 25445

Slmz Mufti Saheb,
I am leaving for Hajj in the next few weeks. I am the Mahram for my wife and mother in law. My mother in law is not able to do a walking hajj but both my wife and I are, and inshallah we intend to walk, however my mother in law is unable to do a walking hajj and will therefore go on the bus. I have been told that being a Mahram I cant do a walking hajj with my wife and leave my mother in law on the bus as a Mahram’s responsibility is to be with her at all times.
Is this correct? or can I and my wife do walking Hajj while my mother in law uses the bus to for her Hajj?

You in this case will have to be with your mother-in-law.
