Business in Iddat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: I am a working lady. In the iddat period I want to work from home so can I talk over the phone to non mahram (marriageable male)? I am taking Khula, what will be my iddat period?

A: It will be permissible for you to work from home. If necessary you may speak to the non Mahram according to need.

The Iddat period is the same as for a divorced woman:

For a woman who experiences Haidh (monthly menses) the Iddah is three Haidh. For a woman who does not experience Haidh it is three months and for a pregnant woman it is delivery of her baby.
