Plz go through a citation Shahnaj bano versus Mubarak Ali & others, 2004 (3) M & DJR 476 (Jhar) {DB}

Here a Muslim husband had filed a petition seeking restitution of conjugal rights (as the wife had refused to live with him) against her Muslim wife, decree for restitution of conjugal rights was passed by trial judge under Shariyat Act/Muslim Law and it wa withheld by DB of High Court.riven

Restitution of conjugal rights under Muslim Law:

When either the husband or the wife has without lawful cause withdrawn from the society of the other, the other party may bring a suit for restitution of conjugal rights. Such a suit is basically a suit for specific performance of the contract of marriage.
However, the wife may take the following defences for staying away from the husband viz., cruelty, non-fulfillment of marital duties, false charge of adultery, irregular marriage, non-payment of prompt dower or impotency of husband
