    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1488/1215=D/1430)

     

    According to Imam Abu Hanifah, it is allowable to give building on rent for abovementioned matters, whereas it is makrooh according to Sahibain (Imam Abu Yusuf & Imam Muhammad); therefore it is better to give it for other objectives.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
