I am performing iddah after getting divorce from my husband, still one month is left to complete. Due to some urgent problem I needed a man's help and to solve my issue he demanded me to do zina. I did zina with him unwillingly.

I know its a sin and I continuously ask for forgiveness, but please tell me does it make any difference to iddah? Did it spoil my iddah?


One of the reasons/wisdom behind keeping iddah is to protect the lineage and to be certain on the fatherhood in case of pregnancy.

So, logically, one has to wait another 3 months before she can legally be eligible for other marriage.
