Maliks Muwatta Book 34, Hadith Number 1.
Section : Renting Land.
Yahya related to me from Malik from Rabia ibn Abd ar-Rahman from Handhala ibn Qays az-Zuraqi from Rafi ibn Khadij that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade renting out fields.
Handhala said, “I asked Rafi ibn Khadij, about paying in gold and silver, and he said, ‘There is no harm in it.'”
