Iddah duration for a revert

Nasihah (Advice): The quality a person should seek in a spouse:

 

The Sahabah (Radiyallahu Anhum) once asked the Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu Alaih Wasallam) as to what is the best thing a man could have. The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu Alahi Wasallam) replied: “A tongue that is engaged in the Zikr of Allah, a grateful heart and a (pious) Mu’min wife who will assist him in strengthening his Imaan.” (Tirmizi)
