The Waiting Period (Iddah) and Mourning

666 Ruling Concerning Delaying the Mourning-Waiting Period for no Legal Reason

Posted on September 13, 2013 | Filed under Eddat Aur Soug, The Waiting Period (Iddah) and Mourning

Question :
I was married for forty years and have five children. My husband passed away on 5-12-1985 but I did not observe my mourning period due to some work I had to perform related to my husband and children. After four months, I began my mourning, that is on 9-12-1985. However, after just one month, something happened to me that forced me to go our of my house. Does that one month count as part of my waiting-mourning time? Is my observing of the waiting-mourning period four months after his death valid or not? You must understand that I was forced to go out to fulfill some work since I do not have anyone to take care of my household work.
