In Islam, a married woman is permitted to seek a termination of her marriage contract through a Shariah Council and Muslim judge. The reasons, for seeking Khula should be founded upon valid reasons, such as immoral behaviour or mistreatment on behalf the husband towards his wife, a woman who feels she dislikes her husband and can no longer give him, his rights etc.
However, this decision should be given serious consideration – a woman is advised to abstain from seeking khula on baseless reasons and to exert necessarily efforts to maintain a harmonious and peaceful relation with her spouse with mutual respect and love. In the unfortunate case, the marriage reaches a point of irreconcilable differences based on valid reasons, all efforts of reconciliation are exhausted and unsuccessful, then Islam has provided a solution for this case i.e. Khula.
