Assalaamu Alaikum Mufti,
A husband owns a property and signs a lease for his wife to rent the property from him. The husband then talaaq’s his wife.
1. Is the lease still valid after the talaaq, i.e. is the wife still allowed to occupy the property until the lease expires?
2. If a witness did not sign the document at the time the husband and wife signed but the witness was present, is the lease agreement still valid?
3. If a witness did not sign but the witness was present at the time and only signs as a witness at later stage, is the lease agreement still valid?
