Divorce and Iddah…


Asalam waleikun,

I have question in regards to divorce. Me and my wife recently moved to her mother’s house and she is pregnant. However, we are not getting along at the moment and things getting worse every day. I would like to know about if we divorce do I have to stay in her mother’s house during the her iddah, even know that they will not want me to be there if we divorce and what are the alternatives?

Please answer.



Wa alaykum salam

It is recommended to stay with your wife during her iddah but if it is impossible or will cause hardship for you,you can stay separately but you will stiil be responsible towards her and the child.

Sukaina Taqawi.
