Our school trip is going to Malaysia, am I allowed to join them? In other words, am i allowed to go with a group of girls to Malaysia without a close family member, but with full security provided by the school? Is it allowed Islamically?
Assalam u Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah
Dear sister in Islam
In light of numerous Prophetic traditions, you should not undertake this journey to Malaysia without a Mahram. A Mahram is someone who can never marry you in your life such as your brother, uncle, father, son etc... You may also travel with your husband if you are married.
And Allah knows best.
