As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Sister in Islaam.

Khula is to request the husband to issue her divorce in exchange of the Mahr (dowry).

If the husband agrees to the khula, then that constitutes a Talaaq-e-baain (an irrevocable divorce). A wife cannot just take khula. The husband has to agree to the khula.

You say, you were away from your husband for 6 months and there was no physical relationship between the both of you. How long are you married? Did you live with your husband after marriage? If so, how long?
