ALLOWANCE FOR A DIVORCEE WOMAN

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

QUESTION:

As Salaamu Alaikum,

If a husband gives his wife divorce once and they are separated what is the law for this 3mths period and does the husband have to pay her an allowance within this 3mths if she is working

ANSWER:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

In the case which you have asked about, the 3 month’s period is the iddah (waiting period) of divorce and in this period, it is essential for the husband to provide maintenance for the divorced wife even if she is working. He may either look after her basic needs/necessities directly or may give her an allowance which will be sufficient to fulfill her basic needs.

And Allah Knows best
