Answered by: Maulana Muqtaur Rahman



I got a talaq bain from my husband on 8/9/2018. and after that, I got my first period on 11/9/2018. And the second period on 5/10/2018.  So, can you tell me when will my iddah get over? When I get my third period or when I get my fourth period?



In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful




Allah says “Divorced women remain in waiting for three periods.”

The iddah of a woman who has been divorced is three complete menstruation cycles.

Please keep track of your third period for when the third period will come to an end the iddah will be concluded.
