Buying and Selling Dolls

Q: Prohibitions and Permissions-12: Is it permissible to buy dolls and give them to children to play with?

Answer: It is not permissible to buy and to use dolls that are in the form of animate objects because the Ahadeeth have cited grave warnings against keeping such things. It is not even permissible for children to play with these. There is however no harm in playing with toys that are not in the form of animate objects. Selling these toys is also not permissible. See Fataawaa Mahmoodiyyah (Vol.5 Pg.377) and Behisti Zewar (Vol.5 Pg. 17). And Allaah knows best what is most correct.
