Terminating a lease due to suspicion

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If it is merely suspected that a tenant buys and sells stolen goods, is it incumbent on the landlord to terminate that tenant’s tenancy?


A: No. If you do not have any evidence to support this suspicion you will not go by the suspicion.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
