Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)


It is only Fardh upon a woman to fulfill Hajj if she has sufficient wealth and a husband,
or any other Mahram relative to accompany her. if she does not have any Mahram relative to accompany her then it is not permissible for her to go for Hajj.


Even if, till her death no Mahram is available, she cannot go for Hajj, rather it becomes Fardh upon her to make Wasiyyat of a Hajj-e-Badal. (Ahsanul Fataawa part 4 pg.532)

It is not permissible for an old woman to travel without a Mahram. Even if she is with a group of women it will still not be permissible. However, if she done the Hajj without a Mahram, the Hajj (obligation) will be valid, but the account of her being involved in such a sin, she will have to Repent. (Aap ke Masaail aur unka hal vol. 4, pg. 83)


And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
