12 Shariah PrinciplesTo create joint ownership in property is called Shirkat-ul-Milk and is expressly allowed by all schools of Islamic Jurisprudence.All Muslim Jurists agree on the permissibility of the Financier leasing his share in property to client and charging him rent i.e. the permissibility of leasing one’s share to his partner.There is difference of opinion among leasing one’s share to a third part But there is no difference on permissibility on leasing to a partner.
13 Shariah PrinciplesPromise of client to purchase units of share of financier is also allowed.The Transactions cannot be combined in a single arrangements and they have to be executed independently.This is because it is a well settled rule of Islamic Jurisprudence that one transaction cannot be made a condition for another.Instead of making the transactions a pre-condition for one another there can be one-sided promises from one party to another
