I had a business which closed due to financial difficulties. I have been sequestrated and know that this does not abslove me from my islamic and moral obligations to my creditors. I would like to know what is the position of my lease agreement according to the shariah? My landlord is a muslim and unsympathtic to my situation. Am I bound by the lease agreement and its clauses for the balance of the duration of the lease to my landlord? His rental has been paid until my business closed. The lease was for 5 years and there remained approx:3 years of the lease.
