Wearing of clothes which has animate objects

Q: I wanted to know if it is allowed in Islam to wear clothes upon which some cartoons or other faces are drawn? Is it allowed to gift these kind of dresses to our relatives or friends who like to wear such kind of clothes? Is playing with stuffed toys allowed or not?

A: Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa

Wearing clothing with pictures of animate objects, and playing with stuffed toys that depict animate objects is not appropriate.  Similarly, gifting of such items is incorrect.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Virtue of Making Salaam First: Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Mas’ood (Radhiallahu Anhu) relates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said: “The one who makes salaam first is free from pride.” (Baihaqi – Shu’abul Imaan 6/433)
