Entering into a rent-to-own contract

Reference: Sharh ‘Umdatil-Fiqh – Tape No.8, Question No.48 (page 116)

Question: He is confused about buying a property by renting it, ending with ownership?

Response: No, no, no! Do not [enter into a contract to] buy [a property] by renting it, culminating with ownership. There is no [contract combining] renting and selling or anything; it is not permissible to combine two differing contracts [into one].

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
