Rulings of Iddah
Respected scholars! Is a Christian woman who is married to a Muslim required to observe `Iddah after divorce or death of her Muslim husband?
Dear Sheikh! Could you enlighten me on the `Iddah of a woman divorced by Khul`? How long should she confine herself to observing `Iddah? Jazakum Allah Khairan.
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.
