Divorced whilst in Hajj


 In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.




If a woman is separated or given talaq whilst in Hajj she may fulfil the remaining rituals of Hajj and as soon as she returns home observe the iddah.  The days spent in Hajj will be included in her iddah.


The waiting period for a female who does not experience menstruation due to childhood or menopause or has reached the age of puberty without menstruation is three months.  The waiting period for a female who does experience menstruation is three menstruation cycles.   (Raddul Muhtar p.182 & p.187 v.5)


The waiting period for a woman whose husband has passed away is four months and ten days irrespective of whether she experiences menstruation or not.  (Raddul Muhtar p.188 v.5)


Only Allah Knows Best
