I am not sure what Shariah says about women to have compulsory male companion during Hajj but Saudi government has changed the Mahram Hajj 2021 policy where Saudi Arabian government has allowed women without male companion to perform the Hajj. More information on Hajj 2021 official policy can be obtained from here. localhaj.haj.gov.sa has tweeted about it too.
Now there is a massive confusion in Pakistan, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and other Muslim countries. Muslims in US, UKA, Australia and other parts of the world also wondering about this policy as how women can register for Hajj without Mahram and what are the conditions around it. People are also asking that who come this centuries old policy has been changed and is there any fatwa around it and what happened out there because this is quite unlike ultra-conservative Saudi government.
Hajj is not allowed in Islam without Mehram. But because liberalism is on the rise in Saudi Arabia, and because of the distance to Islam, all this is happening, and many things are becoming non Islamic. I want to ask because you said the start for booking of packages will start on dhul qiddah 15? May I ask until when is the last day of payment for hajj? Packages are Highly expensive, it’s very difficult to pay such an huge amount, people like us who has basic pay of 2200 per month, it’s very very difficult to pay and perform. Saddened looking at Packages cost.
In the first phase for those wishing to register for Hajj, the electronic portal will be available starting from Sunday, 13 June 2021, at 1:00 PM until Wednesday, 23 June 2021, at 10:00 PM. (Registration is open through the whole period and no priority for early registration). Booking and purchasing packages will start on Friday, 25 June 2021, at 1:00 PM. To register, please visit https://localhaj.haj.gov.sa. Visit visa holder (not immune) can apply for hajj?
So women can perform hajj this year without mahram but they have to be with other group of women.
