      Mortgage / Pawning

      Compensation for Safeguarding Articles in Pawn
      A pawnbroker cannot get a fee for safeguarding/storage of the articles in pawn. Moreover, it is a trick for getting ribā which is ḥarām.

      To Mortgage Other's Property
      A debtor may mortgage some property, which does not belong to him, to a third party provided that the owner has authorized him to do so.

      Deposit in Rent
      It is not permissible to rent a house by only paying some deposit [i.e. without paying any rent]. However, there is no objection to renting a house and stipulating in the rent deed that the tenant pays a certain amount of money as deposit.
