Renting out a portion of one’s premises to a church

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: There is a small commercial property to rent to few different tenants… e.g. Car sales, take way, panel beater, etc…. A small section, about 15 % of the building on first floor is empty so I got an enquiry from a church to hire that portion of the premises. Can I rent it out to a church? Will this income be permissible?

Bismillaah

A: Refuse this.

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