Travelling for umrah without a mahram

Q: I am a unmarried girl. I feel too restless nowadays. And I am worried about my life nothing working appropriately. Everything goes wrong. Now every time I feel if I go to umrah then all problems will be sorted out. But I can not go with any mahram. One of my colleagues and her mom and one family will be going soon. Can I go with them though they aren't my relatives. What should I do?

A: No, you cannot go.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
