Question and Answer:
Q. We have a tenant who has applied to rent an office from us.
His sole business is in Micro Finance. ie. Small loans.
Would the rental income derived from such a tenant be halaal?
(Query published as received)
A. No. It will not be permissible to lease your property to such a business as the major/sole functions are interest bearing transactions. The rental income will not be permissible.
And Allah Knows Best
Nasihah (Advice): Nails and unwanted hair should not be left to grow for more than forty days:
Sayyiduna Anas (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports: “We were taught that we should trim the moustache, clip the nails, remove the hair on the armpits and pubic hairs before forty days can elapse” (Sahih Muslim)
