Ijarah (Leasing): Literally: the reward given for service rendered. It is derived from the root word ajara to recompense, compensate or to give a consideration or return. Ajr (wage) when used in the context of ijarah means the reward given for work or a service, or a compensation given by the lessee for usufruct in a lease contract. An ajir (worker) (pl. ujar') is a person whose labour is the usufruct, i.e., the subject matter of a lease contract. He could also be called musta'jar (hired) or mu'ajjir (lessor), the owner of the leased property. On the other hand, a musta'jir (lessee) is the beneficiary of the services of a worker or of the leased property. Technically: a contract for transfer of ownership of usufruct for compensation. Some said: sale of a known usufruct for a known compensation. Thus, the lease contract belongs to contracts of financial exchange. Scholars agree that leasing is a lawful contract. The majority of jurists rules that a lease is a binding contract, and they stipulated as a condition for its validity that the usufruct and the compensation must be known. With regard to the time that lease contracts become effective, they are classified into three categories: immediately effective leases, leases effective from a future date, and leases made contingent upon a future event. See ISRA Islamic Financial System: Principles and Operations for further details.
