Marrying a woman who has NOT sat for Iddah

Q: If a man marries a woman who has not sat for her Iddah, will the Nikah be valid?

A: Observing Iddah is a Quranic obligation upon a woman. Nikah to a woman whilst she is observing her Iddah is invalid.

If a woman failed to observe her Iddah, she will be sinful. However, making Nikah with a woman whose Iddah period has expired completely is permissible.

And Allah Knows Best
