Khula - Can Dowry and Jewellery be Taken Back?
  • Question

    If a woman takes khula, can she ask for her dowry and jewellery legally?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Khula is when a wife requests her husband to divorce her. The husband agrees to divorce, in exchange of some wealth, material or financial amount. In a Khula case, if the wife has not forsaken her right to mahr, then she can demand her mahr from the husband.

    And Allah knows best.
