Proof for Females accompanying their Mahrams in Allah’s path

Question

Please give me proof for females going out with their mahrams for da’wat (masturat jamat) through Hadith or Quran.

Answer

The primary objective for the Sahabah (radiyallahu’anhum) going on expeditions, was to invite the people to Islam. When they met resistance from the non believers, they resorted to combat. Several Sahabiyyat (radiyallahu’anhu’anhunn) would accompany their husbands and other mahrams when they went out in Allah’s path (in these expeditions).

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has dedicated 7 chapters to this (females taking part in expeditions) in his Sahih Bukhari.

See: Kitabul Jihad chapters; 62-68.

The brothers who engage in the work of da’wah, are always told to abide strictly by the fiqh regulations, especially when their wives accompany them. For the details of the fiqh restrictions, one should refer to the seniors of Tabligh and their Muftis.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
