 Regarding Muslim allowing rent for Alcohol related Business.  

My Father in law rented his building for an company whose job is to clean Liquor (alcohol)bottles and also few bottles like Dettol, Savlon, etc. Is this halal, Is it permissible for eating in their home with this kind of income?

When I informed him to withdraw the rental agreement from that compnay he is not agreeing.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

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

It is permissible to rent out one’s building to a company that cleans liquor bottles.[1] The income will be halal and permissible. As such, you may eat at the house of the person in reference.  

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
