الجواب حامداومصليا

I have written in one previous answers in detail that a woman may travel a distance of 48 miles or more with the following conditions:

1- She is not alone and her traveling companion is a Mahram/relative or a trustworhty and righteous friend/s.

2- The safety and security of way is assured in some way.

3- She is not left alone with a stranger at any time.

And Allah knows best.
