Imam Muwaffaq ud-Din Ibn Qudamah, may Allah have mercy upon him, said of this issue:

“It is not permissible for someone to rent his house/abode/premises to someone who would use it as a church, synagogue or use it as someplace to sell alcohol or gambling/lottery. This has been narrated by a group of scholars.” [1]
