Q: My husband gave me one talaq (divorce) so I'm in iddat (waiting period). I am Shaafi and have completed 2 clean periods already. Will my iddat be over when I get my period after the third clean period?

A.
If she was given Talaaq in her clean period (Tuhr) and this Tuhr still had a few days before it came to an end, her Iddat will end as soon as the third Haidh starts after Talaaq.

If she was given Talaaq during her Haidh, her Iddat will end as soon as the fourth Haidh begins after Talaaq. (Al Iqnaa' - Shirbeeni V2 P468)
