Travelling without a mahram

Q: The followers of Imam Shafiee are permitted to travel as a group of woman over the Sharee distance of 78km. What is their proof for this? What is the ruling of a woman from the Hanafi fiqh to travel with a mahram? Is it fardh, wajib or sunnah?

A: Yes. Refer to their kitaabs like Kitaabul Umm.

It is fardh.

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