Q: Can a lady who is in iddat go for her grandson’s birthday party, intends going to her sister’s birthday in a few days andgo for a visit to her son about 20 minutes drive from home? Is this allowed?
A. A woman in Iddah is not even allowed to go for Haj or Umrah. She will definitely not be allowed to leave her home to attend birthday parties, visiting her son, etc. (Fataawa Al Hindiyyah V1 P219).
