Moving during iddat

Question ID: 26673

Salaams Mufti Elias

Please advise on the principles governing Iddat of a widow:

A couple lived in Cape Town before the husband passed away.
The body moved from CT to Mafikeng where his parents live for the mayyit to take place.
Parents wanted the widow and her 2 very young kids to stay with them just for comfort.

May the widow move to her parents place to complete her iddat after 2 weeks of being in Mafikeng with her inlaws.

Please make dua for the deceased and his widow and 2 kids, his parents and all the grieving family.

Jazakalla Ghair

If there is totally no security at the current place and there is not one to care for her then there is room for permissibility for her to move to her parents

May Allaah grant then strength and ease InshaAllaah.
