Question :

A sixty-year old woman is having marital problems, so she asked her husband for divorce and he did what she wanted. Now she is observing Iddah, is she allowed to leave for Umrah?

The Answer :

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.

The woman observing Iddah following divorce or death of husband isn`t allowed to travel for no necessity, as agreed by the majority of the scholars. Al-Shirbini says, "She isn`t allowed to leave for business, social visits and Hajj, because they aren`t a necessity."{Moghni Al-Mohtajj, 3/402}. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
