The Iddat period after divorce in a Muslim marriage is a period of time where the wife is not allowed to marry anyone else or have sexual intercourse with anyone. Only women have to follow the Iddat period under the Muslim Law.
If you have been divorced by your husband then the Iddat period is:
- Three months from the date your husband says the word ‘talaq’.
- If you are pregnant during this iddat period, then until the date of delivery.
Your husband can always change his mind during the iddat period and take back his talaq, after which, you will be a married couple again.
