As-salamu 'alaykum, Me and my family are going to move to the UK God willing. A sister, who is a close friend of mine, also wants to go there, and she'd live near us God willing. So I think, that she would be protected and in safety. Is it allowed or not in this case? JazakAllahu khairan

If your friend has close relatives (who will take care of her) at the place where you intend to move from then she should not move with you to another country unless there are close relatives of her at the place where she would be moving to.
If she really wants to move and travel with you then you should arrange for her marriage at your earliest chance. It is never a good idea to allow a young woman to live by herself.
And Allah knows best.
