Fatwa ID: 04402
Answered by: Maulana Mohammed Kamran Abid
Has anyone given a fatwa on allowing a property to be rented out to a bank, haram restaurant etc.?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Property can be rented out to a bank or a haram restaurant etc. because the owner of the property is not responsible for what goes on in the property. The rent is given for the use of the property.
Only Allah knows best
