The eminent Muslim scholar and renowned Da`iyah, Sheikh `Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, states:

“If a widow is living in Saudi Arabia , there is nothing for her to perform `Umrah during her `Iddah as long as she can go to perform `Umrah and come back home in the same day. However, if she is not living in Saudi Arabia or that she cannot perform `Umrah in one day and come back home in the same day even if she is living in Saudi Arabia, then she should not perform `Umrah during her `Iddah. During the `iddah the widow has to stay in her home and thus she has to wait after the elapse of her `Iddah to be able to perform `Umrah.”
