Ruling 2352

If a person changes his mind about safeguarding a deposit and annuls the deposit agreement, he must return the deposit to the owner or his agent (wakīl) or guardian as soon as he can, or he must inform them that he is no longer prepared to safeguard it. And if he fails to return the deposit to them without a legitimate excuse (ʿudhr) and does not inform them either, in the event that the deposit perishes, he must replace it.
