Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Q-1, I am staying in House wherein the agreement is on Leased Base,  Written agreement given by owner, Paid Amount by me 1.6lacs, Tenure of staying 3 years, No rent to be  paid, 1.6lacs, will be given back after the completion of tenure, with 3000 deduction as Painting charge, if I want to vacant home  before the tenure I should inform before 3 months, this is how the written agreement given by owner,  it looks like, the rent of home is the interest of money which I have paid, so orally I made agreement with Owner (they are Muslims) like I will pay 200 rupees Monthly as a rent so that I can come out of interest(riba) related transaction, & the owner agreed happily. Am I inline with shariah? Pls clarify

2-Hazrath , Could u pls provide me list of 77 shaaks of eimaan?


In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

A) We understand from your query that you will pay 200 rupees per month as rent as well as the initial amount of 1.6 lacs (which is a customary practise) that will be returned to you at the end of the lease period.
If our understanding is correct, it will not be permissible to enter into such a contract. There is no basis for you to pay a sum of 1.6 lacs whilst you are paying 200 rupees per month as rent.

B) In a Hadith of Sahih Muslim, Hazrat Abu Hurairah (رضي الله عنه) reports that Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) has mentioned:

“Imaan has over seventy or over sixty branches. The most virtuous is to say لا إله إلا الله, the lowest is to remove some harmful object from the path and Modesty is a branch of Imaan”
