The ruling on a woman going to the market with her sister and her sisters husband or a man going with his brothers wife and his wife


What is the ruling on a woman going out with her sisters husband or he takes his brothers wife with his wife and sister to the market?


The likes of this may not be considered travelling if the market is close, but a women going out with her Mahram is what is more protective for her than her going out with (other) women.

For in the likes of this situation it’s (considered) going out with women, and women roaming in the markets without a Mahram is exposure to fitnah.
