Travelling Mahram for a revert


Q. I’m a female revert to Islam and I don’t have any Muslim Mahrams besides my non-Muslim father and brother. Can they be Mahram to me whilst travelling?
A. A Mahram i.e. one with whom marriage is not permitted remains a Mahram for a person even though they may be non-Muslims. Accordingly, it will be permissible for your non-Muslim father or brother to accompany you as your Mahram whilst travelling. (Badaai’-us-Sanaai’ 2/124)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
