Ruling 2170

A settlement is when a person compromises with someone to make the latter the owner of part of his property or the usufruct of his property, or to relinquish a claim or a right of his. The other person in return also gives him part of his property or the usufruct of his property, or relinquishes a claim or a right that he has. In fact, even if a person compromises with someone to give him part of his property or the usufruct of his property, or to relinquish a claim or a right of his without taking anything in return, the settlement is valid (ṣaḥīḥ).
