Q: Can a woman leave her home at time of her iddat if her life is in danger?

A:
If a woman observing iddat is in real danger of losing life or limb, or she suffers from acute fear when alone, then she may leave her home and stay in a safer place. (Fataawa Hindiyyah V1 P535, Aljauharatun Nayyirah V4 P310)
