Assalam-u-aleikum brothers and sisters, I need to know if 'iddat' applies to women over 70 years of age? (period of seclusion from Non-Mehram men after the death of a husband Four Months and 10 days)-

Allah says, [And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women - if you doubt, then their period is three months, and [also for] those who have not menstruated. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him of his matter ease] [65 v4] here what we can understand that when Allah says, [then their period is three months, and [also for] those who have not menstruated] that when a woman reaches the age where she is no longer menstruating like you said years of age then their Ida would be as Allah says here, [then their period is three months]

The answer to your question is and to any woman who is divorced and they do not have any menses then their Ida period is full three months. I hope this answers your question and you are benefited of Insha'Allah, and Allah knows best.
