Islamic scholars have regarded pilgrimage by all Muslims as a cause to the divine grace and blessing of the world and hereafter. Nowadays, this practice has become a debatable issueamongIslamic denominations, especially the Wahhabi sect and other Muslims.Throughout the history, Muslim scholars have issued fatwa on the recommendatory and just sanctity of thepilgrimage of the shrines of Islam owlia. IbnTaymiyyahissued the fatwa on the pilgrimage of owlia’s shrines, and then Hijaz scholars highlighted the significance of this issue based on Taymiyyah’s teachings, and they prohibited any pilgrimage. They presented some doubts such as Prophet’s (PBUH) cursing to visiting women, prohibition of travel for pilgrimage, and heretic innovation and uselessness of the holy shrines. Using the research conducted, it was determined that there is no narration quoted by the Prophet (PBUH) on the prohibition of pilgrimage of the holy shrines in general and the denunciation of the attendance of women in such places in particular.On the contrary, there are some reliable narratives regarding the recommendation to this valuable task (in case of not performing anyunlawful or corrupt affair), and based onthe definitiveness in the narratives or the absolute validity of the narratives on the issue of pilgrimage, there is no difference between men and women in this regard.
