Sheikh Al-‘Adanee’s Ruling on Women Making Hijrah

“However, if there exists from the women she who is rational, and resolute, and possesses insight and comprehension, and is able to travel and leave the land of disbelief to go to the land of Islaam, and she feels safe for herself from fitnah (tribulation), then this woman, it is obligatory upon her to leave and make hijrah when she is in the circumstance where it is obligatory upon her, and it is not a condition that she have a mahram (a guardian who, because of ties, she is never able to marry) because of the statement of Allah,تعالى :

( يا أيها الذين آمنوا إذا جاءكم المؤمنات مهاجرات فامتحنوهن )

” O you who believe, when believing women come to you as emigrants examine them, “(Al-Mumtahanah:10)

For verily Umm Kulthoom bint Uqbah ibn Abee Mu’ait left, and also Zainab the daughter of the Messenger of Allah,صلى الله عليه و على آله و سلم, left, they both left without a mahram, and likewise many women left from Makkah to Madeenah without mahrams, so the hadeeths which mention the condition of having a mahram for a woman to travel don’t apply in the particular case of hijrah.”

    Asalaamu alaikum. I wanted to ask when as’haabi women made hijrah was it after or before the ruling, for them not to travel alone was established?
