The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

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