Giving her a lift to university, along with his wife

Reference: Sharh ‘Umdatil-Fiqh – Tape No.7, Question No.34

Question: I drop my wife off at university, and sometimes she has her friend with her, so is it permissible that I give her a lift together with my wife?

Response: There is no harm in that, [because] this [short distance journey] is not considered as travel, and nor does it involve seclusion [with his wife’s friend]. Therefore, there is no harm [in him giving her a lift together with his wife], and this is permissible.
