    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 752/627/B=1432) According to Hanafi Fiqh, a woman cannot go to perform hajj without her mahram, but for a woman that is above sixty years old there is not so much restriction. If she wants to accompany other women, it is allowable i.e. she can go without a mahram.
