1. Is a widow whose husband has passed away allowed to speak to a non-mahram who has come for taziyat, if there is no fear of Fitnah?
2. Is there any sin if a widow speaks to a non-mahram whilst in iddah?
1. The non-Mahram should be avoided at all times, whether he has come at the time of iddat or out of iddat
2. When it is wrong to speak then obviously a wrong will amount to a sin.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
