The wife is not entitled to maintenance if she refused to go back to her husband’s house

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
There was a argument between him and his wife, and she said, “Take me back to my family, I don’t want to stay with you.” So he took her back to her family and she stayed with them for several months. Does he have to pay maintenance?

Praise be to Allaah.

He does not have to pay maintenance because maintenance is in return for her allowing him to be intimate with her. And that did not happen because she insisted on going and did not stay with him.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
