A woman whose husband dies must abstain from all adornment during the �idda period, but mourning for other relatives should not last for more than three days (3539-3552).  AbU SufyAn, the father of Umm HabIba, one of Muhammad�s wives, died.  She sent for some perfume and rubbed it on her cheeks, observing: �By Allah, I need no perfume but for the fact that I heard Allah�s Messenger say, �It is not permissible for a woman believing in Allah and the Hereafter to mourn for the dead beyond three days, but in the case of the death of the husband it is permissible for four months and ten days� � (3539).
