Is it wrong for a female to go to work during her iddat period after 2nd talaaq?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I received my 1st talaaq and was in my iddat period for 2months when my husband and I broke the iddat period.We did not resolve our differences though therfore he wants to issue me with the 2nd talaaq.For the 1st iddat i was excused from work but that wont be possible for the 2nd iddat.I am living with my parents ,who can support me if need be.Due to the fact that I dont want to burden them financially I dont want to resign from work.Is it wrong for me to go to work even if I go to work wearing my scarf and am dropped off by my father?I work in an office and will be in contact with men but only seldom and only professionally.


It is not permissible for you to go out of the house in which you are spending your ?Iddat. (Raddul Muhtaar, Vol.2, Page 672, Mathaahir-e-Haqq, Vol. 3, Page 435, Fataawaa Darul Uloom Mukammal Mudallal, Vol. 10, Page 287)
