Can I please ask a masala?
Can women do a second umrah whilst in Makkah by themselves if the mahram is not well or any other reason and he cannot do a second umrah so he stays in the hotel?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The Prophet ﷺ is reported to have said: "A woman should not travel for more than three days except with a maḥram. Most scholars have held the opinion that this is equal to the distance of 16 farsakh, which is roughly equivalent to 48 miles.
If the journey for the first ʻumrah was taken with a maḥrām, and the maḥram is unable to join on the second one and stays at the hotel, that would be acceptable as long as the woman does not travel a distance greater than 48 miles to reach a location (such as al-Tanʻīm or al-Jiʻrānah) to put on the iḥrām.
