Khula and `Iddah

Question:

Assalam o alaikum

i have a question i have already decided to take khula from my husband as he is an ahmadi but the point is that i do not have relation with my husband since i got to know that he is an ahmadi and it has been almost 4 and half years … now i filed the case of khula but due to lockdown its getting late so i want to know what is the process of idda because there are many scholars saying different things and i am confused and i also contacted you before and you explain me very well but it was for divorce ..does the process of idda is same for khula? And for how many days i have to perform idda even i do not have any husband wife relation with him for over more than 4 and half year.. please help me out i do not want to do any wrong thing . Jazak’Allah .. Allah pak bless you ameen ..

Answer:

Waalaykumussalam warahmatullah,

Allah Most High said:

{And divorced women wait and see what happens to them for three purity cycles} (al-Baqara 2:228),

i.e. for a duration that begins at the onset of the menstrual cycle, so the same `idda applies for khul`, during which a woman keeps to her house. The fact that you already had no relations with him for more than four years means that any part of the lockdown that qualifies as “keeping to the house” also already applies towards that¬†three purity cycles¬†duration.
