Al-Baqarah 2:240

وَٱلَّذِينَ يُتَوَفَّوْنَ مِنكُمْ وَيَذَرُونَ أَزْوَٰجًا وَصِيَّةً لِّأَزْوَٰجِهِم مَّتَٰعًا إِلَى ٱلْحَوْلِ غَيْرَ إِخْرَاجٍۚ فَإِنْ خَرَجْنَ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِى مَا فَعَلْنَ فِىٓ أَنفُسِهِنَّ مِن مَّعْرُوفٍۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

And those who are taken in death among you and leave wives behind – for their wives is a bequest: maintenance for one year without turning [them] out. But if they leave [of their own accord], then there is no blame upon you for what they do with themselves in an acceptable way. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise

Al-Baqarah 2:241

وَلِلْمُطَلَّقَٰتِ مَتَٰعٌۢ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِۖ حَقًّا عَلَى ٱلْمُتَّقِينَ

And for divorced women is a provision according to what is acceptable – a duty upon the righteous

From the above verses of the glorious Quran we came to know that-
There are two different cause for waiting periods (Idd’at)
  • Either due to death of husband or
  • due to divorce,
in both the case wife has rights of maintenance, accommodations​ and provisions in the same house she was living with her husband

Does she has shares in property of her husband

Yes,  Even one step ahead in case of death of her husband she has also her share in husband’s property according to Islamic rules of distribution of properties, this is a beauty of Islam that it gives rights to all.

Can she marry with other

Yes, Afer end of waiting periods she can marry (If she or her guardians want)  with another man of her choice
