Question

What is the ruling on the woman who travelled with her husband for Hajj and he died before completing the rituals?

Fatwa

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His Slave and Messenger.

If a woman travels with her husband for Hajj but he died before finishing the rituals and after Ihraam, then she should complete her rituals. The death of her husband does not affect her rituals. Concerning the man, it is not needed to complete the rituals on his behalf or offer a ransom.

Allah Knows best.
