Islamically is there something unlawful about Second Mortgage property?


Salaam alaykum wr wb,

My father and I have already committed to buying a second property under my name and will soon be applying to get a mortgage under my name. He wants this to make my life easier in the future. I currently do not possess the financial means to undertake this task and he is assisting me, though it is possible that I may not live in this house and may rent it instead. So from a Islamic legal perspective, is there anything about this transaction that may be unlawful?

May Allah bless your efforts and the askanalim team!


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

No, there is no problem in the mentioned scenario.

On the other hand, make sure you pay Khums for whatever is eligible for Khums.
