Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Is it permissible(halal) for women to (travel to) seek Islamic knowledge without a mahrem, within city limits(10 KM), where travelling takes only around 10 minutes to the location.

i didn't check out these 2 links they are very detailed but i heard a fatwa once that states if the road is safe then she doesn't need a mahrem even if it is overseas

great link tokabo. i love islamqa. that guy is so awesome. and by that i mean crazy. but a true islamic scholar.

"The married woman should remember that obedience to her husband takes precedence over obedience to her parents. A man should not give precedence to anyone over his mother with regard to kind treatment, and a woman should not give precedence to anyone over her husband with regard to obedience." who is right be damned. obey your husband woman.
