Answered by:  Alimah Sabrina al-Faarsiyyah​

 

Question:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Is there no rules on Iddah or waiting period

To do a new Nikkah with a new man because she had illegal intercourse with her ex-husband? Jazzakallah 

   بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

                                

                                 In the name of ALLAH the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Answer:

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

There is no ‘iddah (waiting period) due to her. She can get married to a new man.[1] She must repent sincerely and consistently for committing such a great act of sin.
