The death of a husband after the consummation of marriage contract even if before having sexual intercourse so long as conditions of marriage are met entails the wife to observe the Iddah for four months and ten days, because Allah, The Most Exalted Says (What means): "Such of you as die and leave behind them wives, they (the wives) shall wait, keeping themselves apart, four months and ten days. And when they reach the term (prescribed for them) then there is no sin for you in aught that they may do with themselves in decency. Allah is informed of what ye do." [Al-Baqarah/234].

In case of divorce, and if neither sexual intercourse nor valid Khilwa (Being in a state of seclusion) took place, Iddah isn't due upon the wife, because Allah, The Most Exalted (What means): "O ye who believe! If ye wed believing women and divorce them before ye have touched them, then there is no period that ye should reckon." [Al-Ahzab/49].

Summarized Fatawaa

Is it permissible for a woman to visit the doctor while in her `Iddah(waiting period)?

It is permissible for her to do that during day time, but it is impermissible for her to go out at night except for a sound reason.

I`m a mother of three orphans. Is it permissible for me to spend on myself from their salary, such as buying a Jilbab*?

All perfect praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.
It is permissible to take a reasonable amount that is equal to your services to them. However, it is better that you don`t. The evidence on this is that Almighty Allah Says (What means): "Make trial of orphans until they reach the age of marriage; if then ye find sound judgment in them, release their property to them; but consume it not wastefully, nor in haste against their growing up. If the guardian is well-off, Let him claim no remuneration, but if he is poor, let him have for himself what is just and reasonable. When ye release their property to them, take witnesses in their presence: But all-sufficient is God in taking account." [An-Nisa`/6]. And Allah The Almighty Knows Best.
