Here are some of the fataawa (from www.fatwa-online.com) from the 'Ulema on this issue, they should provide you with some information on this issue, Insha'Allaah;
A woman does not act as a mahram for another woman
Ruling concerning a woman riding with a non-mahram chauffeur
Sending a maid for Hajj with a group of women or a Hajj package group
However, this is where i would like to ask for some information regarding a hadeeth, that Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan hafithahullah quotes in the fatwa "Sending a maid for Hajj with a group of women or a Hajj package group."
Could one of the Tulaab ul'Ilm please enquire into the meaning and explanation of the hadeeth quoted (from www.fatwa-online.com):
The issue is that of the two days, is this a condition of a level of permissability for a woman to travel if the distance of travel is less than two days? Is a Mahram supposed to be present during a journey of less than two days? And what do the two days represent? Does it represent the geographical distance? The time journey? The time journey considered by the people of her residence/community of being that of two days?
Please makesure you read the fatwa in order to understand the context of the fatwa and the reason behind why the hadeeth has been quoted. Because the Shaykh hafithahullah states that it is impermissable for the woman to travel with a group of women or a Hajj package group (with regard the subject) and although the hadith states an issue with regard 'two days' obviously the traditions of Hajj and its completeion are more than two days, so then the hadith would make absolute sense.
OR is it that i have totally misunderstood the hadeeth!
Imaam al-Awzaa'ee said, "Patiently restrict yourselves to the sunnah, stop where the people stopped, say what they said, avoid what they avoided. Take to the path of the salaf, for indeed what was sufficient for them was sufficient for you."
