A Woman in Iddah Attending a Weeding

Home / Iddah / A Woman in Iddah Attending a Weeding


I know it’s the brother’s right when he invites you to a wedding that you accept the invitation and go to the wedding party.

Now this is the case: The husband of a woman has died last week. May Allah forgive him and grant him Paradise. Next week the woman’s sister is having a nikaah party for her daughter. Knowing that the woman is still in her iddah, is she allowed to go to the wedding party? What about joining the party for a few hours? Is she allowed or does she have to stay in her house during the iddah?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

No, she is not allowed to attend. She has to stay in her home during the iddah.
