rental income from Tenant who works at Casino


Question: I have a residential property. Can I rent it to someone who works at a Casino. Is it allowed? Will the income be halal for me?

Salamun Alaykum
Regarding your query, according to Ayatollah Sistani, the person may pay the rent from some other income which could be halal, but there is no need for you to ask the person whether he/she is paying rent from the casino money or some other income, i.e. it is ok for you to take rent money from them.
