Is it ok for my wife to travel to another state to visit a friend without me?
She will be staying with the friend's family (mother, father, sister etc). I don't know the family very well because they lived overseas.
In the Sahih of Muslim, Hadhrat Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri (Radhiallaahu Anhu)
narrates that Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, 'Let no women travel
for more than three days (being the equivalent of 48 miles / 88 kms.) unless
her husband or her Mahram is with her.'
In view of the abovementioned Hadith, it is not permissible for women to travel alone.
and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
