Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

The 18th of October corresponded to the 1st of Rabi’ al-Awwal in South Africa. If it was also the 1st of Rajab in your country, then your ‘Iddah terminates on the 10th of Rajab. It does not matter if some months had 29 days.

However, if it was not the 1st of Rajab, then your ‘Iddah terminates on the 25th of February.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
