Leasing one's property to a conventional bank

Q: Is it permissible to lease one's property to a conventional bank?

A: The majority dealings of all conventional banks are in total contradiction with the laws of Shari'ah. Their main operation revolves around interest and usury. Hence, it is not permissible to lease one's property to a conventional bank.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
