My sister got married in 2010 and is a mother of two kids. Due to misunderstanding, she got separated from her husband in 2012. From then she is staying with her parents. No contact with her husband. She had filed a case in court and it got ended yesterday after 4 yrs. After the case was over, legally they got divorced. Is Iddah necessary for her?
If this court is Islamic, she needs to go into one monthly cycle only.
But if this is a civil court, she is still married to him and she must take the civil court’s decision and show it to a Muslim court or to the authorized Islamic center so that they can issue her an Islamic separation from her husband.
