Question:

 Dear Dr. Nabulsi

 I want to travel to a Western country to complete my post-graduate study. Can I stay with a Muslim family there as I have no husband or mahram to go with me?

 Thank you

Answer

A Muslim woman cannot travel or live there except with her husband or a mahram (a brother, father...).

 Best regards
