QUESTION:

If a woman ends a mut'ah and has not had any physical relationship with
her husband for a period of two months before the agreed upon experation
of the mut'ah does she still have an iddah? If a woman did not have any
physical relationship with her husband for a period of one month before
the experation of their mut'ah and she had mentruated, is her iddah still
two cycles of mentruation or only one?  If their is any difference of
opinion on this issue, please respond with the judgement of Ayatullah Khamenei.

ANSWER:

The rules of 'Iddah dictate that a woman observes the 'Iddah from the time
when the divorce is pronounced or the time when the temporary contract
expires. The time of her last sexual contact is actually irrelavant to the
beginning of the 'Iddah and its duration.  Therefore, the woman has to
observe the passage of two menstrual cycles from the time that the
temporary marriage expires. You will find all Ulema agreed on this point.

Was-Salaam.
