My question #1:

We have a restaurant. We would like to lease it out to somebody. If the person
who leases my restaurant starts selling liqour in it will the money which
comes tome as my rent from it be lawful (hallal).

Answer

If the restaurant was leased as the eating place, and no mention or
permission about selling liquor was made, then if the tenant starts selling
it, the rental accrued from the restaurant is halal.


My question #2

We intend to make a socio/sports club. Inside it there will be a restaurant
and card rooms. Again if we lease it out and if unlawful activites like
gambling and consumption of liqour is taken place, such a venture will be
lawful?

Answer

Providing for card room is not permissible, because it is haram
irrespective of whether it is played against a stake or not.
