Can a woman call off the mutah contract


Can a woman (in mutah) call off the mutah contract on her own(since the guy she had mutah with is not on talking terms with her)??


Salaam Alaykum,

The termination of the contract can only be done by the husband, unless the wife had stipulated at the time of the contract that she would also have the right to terminate the marriage.

If she feels that it is an oppressive or intolerable relationship, she can turn to the Marja or his appointed deputy (Hakim Sharh) for help in ending the contract early.

Your sincerely
