Can a wife go to hajj without her husband’s permission?

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving.


All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon His Prophet Muhammad.


A husband may not prevent his wife from performing the obligatory Hajj-pilgrimage as long as she has fulfilled all the required condition. According to the majority of scholars, a husband does not have this right and becomes sinful if he prevents his wife from fulfilling the personal obligation of hajj.


But if a woman wants to perform a voluntary hajj-pilgrimage, then her husband has the right to prevent her; since his permission in this case is a must.


Almighty Allah knows best.
