Q: My father in law passed away recently. My mother in law is around 65 years old. I would like to bring her to Saudi Arabia from Pakistan so that her daughter, who is my wife can take care of her. The iddat period is 4 months 10 days. Can we break this iddat by paying kaffarah?
A: No. This is not permissible. Bring her to Saudi Arabia after the iddat period passes.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
