As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
What is the iddah of a widow with no menstruation? I know a widow with menses is 4 months and 10 days but without menses how long will her iddah be?
Wa Alaikum As Salaam Wa Rahmatullah,
The iddah (waiting period) of a widow is 4 months and 10 days. This is the same whether a woman has menses or has passed the age of menses.
