In the 90s, Shaykh ul Islam Syed Madani Miyan was also asked pertaining renting vs owning a home via mortgage. Madani Miyan also gave similar ruling as Azhari Miyan. The person was concerned that rent was going to a kafir and renting essentially had no ROI; hence, full benefit to a kafir and none to the Muslim paying the rent. Where owning a home, you have equity in the home and there is a high chance you will sell the home at a higher price and making an overall profit (benefiting a Muslim). Allah ta’ala knows best.
