    Title: Giving shop on security

    Question: I have 1 shop in Delhi which I want to give on security of 10 lacs to a person who wants to do his business from there without giving rent. When he will vacate my shop I will give back his security amount. I just want to confirm is this right or wrong to give shop or house on security. Please answer me as soon as possible.

    It is wrong to rent shop with security. You should not take the security money rather take the normal rent. Likewise, it is not lawful for one who took a shop with security to keep it without any amount of rent; it is getting benefit by giving debt which is unlawful.
