What advice can you give a young, but over 21-year-old, female Muslim, who is
single, able to control her actions and wants to travel abroad without a chaperone for the
1. For education/training and or business.
2. For sightseeing and the pleasure of tourism.
Does the number of nights she is to spend away form home have any bearing?
Islam seeks to protect Muslim women from the evil intentions of others. Despite it
being reasonable for a girl of 21 to be independent and able to control herself, our
advice is that such a girl should refrain from travelling, for either business or pleasure, without
a suitable chaperone.
