Answered by: Maulana Mohammed Kamran Abid
Can a widow travel with her father in law after the death of her husband?

The relationship of a father-in-law is a relationship of a Mahram. Therefore, it would be permissible for a daughter-in-law to travel with her father-in-law after the death of her husband if there is no fear of Fitna between them.
Only Allah knows best
