Hera Shabbir

All throughout history ladies in Saudi were only allowed to preform Umrah with a male guardian which has now been withdrawn for women above 45 years of age

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah announced the change this Tuesday of women being able to travel without their male guardian (mahram), and people are very happy about it. As reported by The National, residents hope the change will save money for many families, as some struggle with the means or availability of a mahram.

The Kingdom had also recently allowed women to preform the holy pilgrimage of Hajj without a male guardian

Women in the Kingdom are also permitted to live on their own without the consent of a male guardian/mahram. Saudi has constantly been opening doors of opportunity for its women, and everyone’s loving it!
