Is this Hadith authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“No one of you should meet a woman in privacy unless she is accompanied by a mahram”
Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). The Hadith is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5233 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1341)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
