I have heard that for a women, after the death of her husband, is it not permitted for her to contact any other male person directly or even talk to him on the phone. I have heard many other things as well regarding the restrictions that are imposed upon a widow, some of which seem to me to be quite strange and severe. Please clarify these matters for me.

What is the `iddah for a married woman who accepts Islam? Does she have to wait until her divorce from her non-Muslim husband is cleared through the courts before she can re-marry?

If a man makes a pronouncement of divorce upon his wife while she is pregnant and she has a miscarriage, does that mean that her `iddah is over and he no longer has the right to take her back except with a new marriage contract? Does it make a difference whether or not the soul has been breathed into the child?

When a divorced woman has completed her waiting period, she is free to marry someone else. Does her former husband have any obligation towards her at this time?

What are the woman’s rights regarding her maintenance and housing during her waiting period? What about her rights regarding her daughter from that marriage?

I am getting a divorce from my husband. How should our wealth be divided according to Islam, with the knowledge that I worked with side-by-side with him to create our wealth? Am I entitled to the 50% or is it any less since he is the man and I the woman? Someone advised that in divorce the settlement goes according to the country you live in. How true is that? In our country, there is community of property, meaning that each spouse is entitled to 50% upon divorce.

I have repeatedly asked my husband for a divorce, but he told me to go do it for myself (khul`). I want to know how to undertake this matter.

What is the ruling for the following scenario: A man divorces his wife and takes her back during the `iddah, so that was the first divorce. After some time; he divorces her again and takes her back once more during her `iddah; so that is the second divorce. After another period of time, the woman requests a khul` separation and her husband grants it. Can they get married again? I know that after three divorces, the husband cannot remarry his wife, but were there three divorces in this case?

My friend asked her husband for a khul' while she was on her menses. Is the khul' valid?

Last Modified:  24 Aug 2011 07:07  GMT

My question concerns the khul` separation. If a man says to his wife: "I will grant you your freedom in lieu of you awarding me custody of our children”, is this considered a valid khul` separation?

If a woman seeks a khul` separation while she is pregnant, is the duration of her pregnancy considered an `iddah or not?

n the fatwâ on khul` by Sheikh `Abd Allah b. Nâsir al-Sulamî, he writes: “It is lawful that the man issues one divorce only, but it is better if he pronounces khul` and not divorce.” This indicates that there is a difference between pronouncing divorce and khul`. So please mention how the khul` is pronounced?

My question to you is about divorce. I know that divorce is not unlawful, however I read somewhere that a woman who asks for divorce for no reason will never ever enter Paradise. Can you please elaborate on that?

A woman has caught her husband engaging in homosexual acts. Is the marriage valid? Can the woman ask for a divorce ? Is she supposed to pay back the dowry in case she wants the divorce? Her parents are trying to force her to stay with him in hopes that he will mend his ways. Does she have to comply with her parents' wishes?
