Nikahnama cannot be cancelled

Once Nikah is contracted between parties and it is legally registered, Nikahnama cannot be cancelled. However, parties have rights after that. The husband has the right to divorce and the wife has the right to take khula in cases where the spouses are not willing to continue their relationship.

For taking khula the wife has to file Suit for Dissolution of Marriage on the grounds of Khula while if the husband is left with no option to keep the relationship intact, he can divorce the wife under the provisions of section 7 of the Muslim Family Laws Ordinance 1961.
