Renting a commercial register in return for money

The first question of Fatwa no. 5846
Q 1: Nowadays, it happens in Gulf states and especially in Bahrain that a citizen who has a commercial register from Commercial Register Office, which allows him to do business, rents the commercial register to another person that he brings from India for example. It should be noted that the state does not allow the person who has a commercial register to rent it to others. A commercial register should only be used for the benefit of the person who has it. Is it permissible for me to rent the commercial register which is not a tangible property like real estate, agricultural land, cars and vehicles?
A: It is not permissible to rent the commercial register to another person because the state prevents this. It is prevented for bringing benefit and warding off harm. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
