I recently got divorced from my husband and I am also 6 weeks postpartum and breastfeeding. How long is the idah of a breastfeeding woman?
We don’t know from the question when the divorce (recently) was pronounced – during pregnancy or after it. All five schools concur that a pregnant divorcee will observe ‘iddah till childbirth in accordance with the verse:
وَأُوْلاَتُ الأَحْمَالِ أَجَلُهُنَّ أَنْ يَضَعْنَ حَمْلَهُنَّ
And as for pregnant women, their term shall end with delivery. (65:4)
