What are the rules of behavior a woman needs to follow when her husband dies? Is she allowed to go outside? Can she attend his funeral? How long is her waiting period?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. A man had been living with a woman before he came to the Islamic Center, expressing the desire to marry her in order to live a lawful life. He heard from some people that he had to keep aloof from her for a while to allow her complete a `iddah (the period a widow or a divorcee should wait before getting married) and then he can marry her. What is the legal judgment on that under Muslim law? And what if this woman is pregnant from this man? Jazakum Allah khayran.

My parents were planning to make Hajj this year, but then my father suddenly died. My mother is in her `iddah (waiting period), but she would like to make Hajj. She says that she made the niyyah (intention) and if she does not go to Hajj this year, she does not know what will happen to her next year.
As-Salamu `alaykum! I have some urgent questions concerning divorce. I have been separated from my husband for 8 months. I asked for divorce and finally he has agreed to give me that. Do I have to wait for 3 months if I want to marry someone else? I have not been touched by him for the 8 months. Is the reason for the 3 months to find out if one is pregnant and it's obvious I am not pregnant. So please do I need to wait for 3 more months before I talk to someone else?
