How much money should a woman have for the Hajj to become Fard for her?

Question 1: What do Islamic scholars state about this issue? How much money should a sane, pubescent and healthy Muslim woman have for the Hajj to become Fard for her?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: If a sane, pubescent and healthy Muslim woman has such an amount of money besides her needs through which she can afford her Hajj expenditure and other traveling expenses and can also afford the expenses of any trustworthy Mahram, Hajj will become Fard for her and she will have to pay the expenses of that Mahram as well. وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم صلَّی اللہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم

What do Islamic scholars state about woman’s act of leaving home without a valid reason during the period of ‘Iddah?

Question 2: What do Islamic scholars and Muftis say about this issue? Hinda’s husband has passed away. Hinda, during the period of Iddah, leaves home for shopping for clothes etc., although she has no need of buying clothes. She also adorns herself. Are these acts of Hinda permissible or not? Hinda is in ‘Iddah and she has enough things to spend the period of ‘Iddah.

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: In the above-mentioned situation, Hinda’s act of leaving home during the period of ‘Iddah is impermissible and a sin. Shari’ah has given permission to go outside home in some cases, but Hinda’s act of going out is without any Shar’i permission. Similarly, her act of adorning herself during the period of Iddah is not permissible either because mourning, as per Shari’ah, has to be observed during the period of Iddah and adornment is against mourning.

What do Islamic scholars state about women’s act of having blessed hair of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in their possession?

Question 3: What do Islamic scholars state about the following issue? Can women have holy relics in their possession especially blessed hair of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم? (Questioner: Muhammad Bilal Attari (Mohni road, Lahore))

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

As men are allowed to have Holy relics, similarly, women are also allowed to have Holy relics in their possession. It is also permissible as per Shari’ah to have the blessed hair of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم as keeping other holy relics is allowed. It has been proved from many blessed female companions رَضِیَ اللّٰهُ عَنْهُن that they had the blessed hair of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and other holy relics as well in their possession. Sayyidatuna Aaishah Siddiqah رَضِیَ اللّٰهُ عَنْهَا had the blessed blanket and the blessed Tahband of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Sayyidatuna Asma Bint-e-Abu Bakar Siddique رَضِىَ اللهُ عَـنْهُما had the blessed Jubbah and Sayyidatuna Umm-e-Sulaim رَضِیَ اللّٰهُ عَنْهَا had the blessed hair and perspiration of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.  In addition to them, many female pious predecessors had the blessed hair of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in their possession. وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم صلَّی اللہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم
