Benefit: The Ruling on Women Who Ride Alone in Vehicles with Foreign Drivers

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Ibn al-ʿUthaymīn [d. AH 1421], may Allāh have mercy upon him, says:1

It is not permissible for a man to be alone with a woman (by herself) in a vehicle, unless he is her maḥram, because the Prophet, may Allāh raise his rank and grant him peace, said:

No man should be alone with a woman without there being a Maḥram present.2

However, if there are two women with him or more, then there is no objection. This is because there is no privacy or seclusion (available between the lady and the driver) in this case – with the condition that it is safe and not a journey. And Allāh is the Granter of Success.
