Giving for rent for a beauty center

Q:

Assalamu Aleykum, Is permitted to give for rent an estate which will be used as a center of “Beauty Saloon Courses”, thus there will be teaching things like massage,haircuts etc but also things which are Not allowed in Islam like eyebrows,full-body waxing,piercing etc. So is permitted to give for rent an estate which will be used for these purposes?

A:

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

If you have a choice to choose, then you should not do it.

Otherwise, you may be excused – as long as the service they provide is not all haram. Beauty saloon courses cannot be deemed as wholly haram.

One of the principles of the Shariah is that we are not accountable for matters that are beyond our control.

Therefore, you should exercise your sound judgment regarding what you can do and what you cannot. And continue to ask forgiveness of Allah in regards to matters you have no control over.  Allah teaches us in the Qur’an:

{Allah does not burden any soul with more than it can bear: each gains whatever good it has done, and suffers its bad- ‘Lord, do not take us to task if we forget or make mistakes. Lord, do not burden us as You burdened those before us. Lord, do not burden us with more than we have strength to bear. Pardon us, forgive us, and have mercy on us. You are our Protector, so help us against the disbelievers.’} (Al-Baqarah 2:286)

 Allah Almighty knows best.
