Leasing a car

Question:

Salam,

Is leasing a car halal?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Answer:

Wa alaykum as salam
Leasing a car in itself is permissible, provided that there are no other conditions attached to the transaction. If it is conditional that the lessee applies for full coverage insurance as well, it is permissible according to some scholars. Other scholars deem it impermissible, therefore it is better to avoid it.

 والله اعلم

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
