okay so i saw in another post about how a mahram has to go w/ a female if they travel.... was it more than 77 kilometers... but what if someone is the only revert in a family and no one to go w/ them.. does tht mean they are just unable to travel at all ?
sorry for the ignorance question

to ask on the other thread seemed to be something that could derail the other thread and i simply did not want to do that. I was trying to be respectful of the originial poster from the other thread. if that was an error .. my sincere apologies.

hmmm interesting question, never thought about that.
I remember reading and will inshaAllah find source that in case of necessity (and this was for hajj) if a woman didnt have a mahram she could travel with a trustworthy group of women. But that is one opinion and a scholar should be asked about this specific question

Asalaamu Alaikum, Your question is answered here:

You may consider your non-Muslim father as your Mahram, thus uncover (parts of the body that can be exposed in front Mahrams) in front of him.


Imam al-Kasani (Allah have mercy on him) states:


�A Mahram is one with whom marriage is permanently unlawful� whether this Mahram is a free person or a slave, for slavery is not contrary to close relationship (mahramiyya), and whether he is a Muslim, a non-Muslim or an atheist (mushrik), for a non-Muslim Mahram normally safeguards her, except that he is a fire worshipper, for he considers marriage with her to be permissible.� (Bada�i al-Sana�i, 2/124)


However, if there is a fear of temptation (fitna) on either side or you fear that by kissing him, he will have evil thoughts and desires, you must avoid uncovering in front of him and kissing him. The jurists (fuqaha) have stated that, covering becomes necessary even in front of Mahrams if there is a fear of Fitna or desire.


Today we live in a time where sexual impropriety is becoming common in non-Muslims, thus one must be careful. If your non-Muslim father is old or you feel that he will have no evil thoughts, then it would be permitted to remove your Hijab in front of him and kiss him.


And Allah knows best
