Iddah - Need A Non-Muslim Woman Observe Iddah Before Marrying a Muslim Man
  • Question:

    Is a revert woman required to observe the waiting period from the previous marriage to the non-Muslim husband before she can marry a Muslim man?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    A non muslim woman who accepts Islam, will complete the ‘iddah waiting period before marrying another Muslim man. This is the opinion of the majority jurists. (See: Al Fiqh Al Islāmī Wa Adillatuhu)

    And Allah knows best.
