What is the ruling if a woman finds that she is pregnant during her iddah period? Does the iddah continue on with the 3 months rule or does it continue until the pregnancy is complete?

    I assume you mean that she realized she was pregnant during her 'iddah. – Medi1Saif Feb 25 '17 at 19:48

    No. She falls pregnant during her iddah – Aslam Fredericks Feb 26 '17 at 12:12

    This needs further information. Please consider editing your post because falling pregnant in 'iddah may mean either a reconciliation happened or something unlawfull. In any case i doubt that the actually given answer adresses this case. – Medi1Saif Feb 26 '17 at 13:26

All the scholars agree that the iddah of a divorced woman that is pregnant ends when she gives birth because Allah says in the Quran:

“And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is until they lay down their burden”

(al-Talaaq 65:4)

  • Could you provide evidence for the statement that all scholars agree on that even if she doesn't want to? – Kilise May 5 '17 at 21:17
  • What do you mean when you say 'even if she doesn't want to'? – Muslim_1234 May 5 '17 at 21:22
