Saudi Arabia Makes a Landmark Decision on Hajj for Women

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has permitted women to register for Hajj 2021 without a mahram (male guardian).

According to its Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, women who want to register for Hajj this year will be part of the Women’s League.

Hajj 2021 has been limited to citizens and residents of the KSA to control the spread of the coronavirus.
