Evicting Tenant

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: I have a tenant who rents a shop from me selling audio, tv’s etc. Despite my many requests this Muslim tenant’s staff and wife continuously play the music very loudly. Upon my objections they stop for a while before starting to play loudly again. I have considered going to a lawyer to evict them, but my wife and sister feel that we need the money and that I am being unreasonable. What should I do?

A. In the first place, it is not permissible for you to let out your premises for the sale of TV and videos. Apart from the loud music, this itself is Haraam. You should take steps to evict these people. Inshaa Allah you will get other tenants who will conduct a Halaal business.
