Going out to work during iddat

Q: If a working lady got divorced or her husband died, can she continue her job without doing iddat to financially support herself?


A: If there is no person to see to the expenses of the house and she is forced to work then she should leave in a very unattractive way and return as soon as her work has ended.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
