Invalidity is the state of a juridical act not valid in terms of law, and lacking the expected effects in terms of its validity. In fact, an invalid juridical act is one lacking an essential foundation and not restoring validity through subsequent authorization. Shiite jurisprudents consider the word "invalidity” in its general sense including the state of being inoperative.
The present article seeks to clarify the meaning of annulment of contract, and its differences with institutions such as invalidity, being inoperative, withdrawal of contract, and suspension in the Shiite jurisprudence, the four Sunni schools of law and the law of Iran. Since the concept of annulment in the law of Egypt(as a Muslim country with its legal system based on Sunni jurisprudence) is different from that in the law of Iran, it will also deal with and analyze those differences.
