If a woman serving her Iddat of Talaaq-e-Rajee leaves her husbands home and spends her Iddat at her parents home, will she be entitled to Nafaqah (maintenance)? What is the ruling if she left against her husbands will?
If against her husband’s will, she spends her Iddat elsewhere, by leaving the matrimonial home where she was supposed to be observing her Iddat (without a valid Shari’ee reason), then she will be considered as Naashizah (disobedient) and will not be entitled to Nafaqah.
لَا نَفَقَةَ لِأَحَدِ عَشْرَ : …وَ خَارِجَةٌ مِنْ بَيْتِهِ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ وَهِيَ النَّاشِزَةُ حَتَّى تَعُودَ (الدر المحتار ص286 ج5)
