Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

QUESTION:

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?

ANSWER:

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.
