Is it permissible to rent your property to a Cold Storage business that deals in Haraam?


Is it permissible to rent your property to a Cold Storage business that deals in Haraam mutton and chicken. 


In order for us to advise, answer the following:

1)     Is the owner of the cold storage business Muslim or non-Muslim?


2)     If the owner is a Muslim, what will he be using the cold storage for? Will it be only for the Haram mutton and chicken? Does he have other source of Halal income?

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
