How should a woman complete her iddat?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My grandfather passed away a few months ago and my grandmothers iddat will be completed on Sunday insha’Allah, is there any specific procedure in which she must “break” it? 


A: There is no special way of coming out of iddat. Once she completes the time of iddat, she will come out of iddat.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
