Women Driving Cars

Can women drive cars? What does Islam say about it?

Women can drive cars. However, if they are going on long journeys, then they must be accompanied by mahrams. The women in the time of the Prophet (ﷺ) rode camels, and horses. The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“The best women among the camel riders are the righteous women of Quraysh.” [1]
