I would like to ask on behalf of our sister whose husband was murdered by an unidentified man while he was in salatul Ishaa’ in the masjid that is inside their compound.
The sisters asks if she could leave their home to spend her iddah with her parents and eventually live with them, as she and her children are not only grieving for the loss of her husband and their father, but they also fear for their own lives. May Allaah bless you.
Yes. Scholars said in this situation it is allowed. She can spend iddah at her parents house
