Can bicycles with decorations be imported?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
1. Please kindly tell me if it permissible to import bicycle which has a horn in the shape of animal head with eyes which are attached if the intention of buying both by me and my customers are not the eyes itself?
2. If there are other small pictures on the seat and other parts of the bicycles, will it be permissible with the intention being only the bicycles 3. If not, what is the ruling of the income received from it. Will it be halaal or just contaminated?

(Fatwa: 285/282=D)

(1) You intend to buy and sell the cycle. As far as the pictures are concerned they are not meant by the transaction but are indirectly included in the dealing. You do not intend to buy and sell the picture. So, it is allowable to deal in such cycles.

(2)  If the pictures are so small that they cannot be seen by a sound man standing then such small pictures can be seen and kept without any sin. But, however making pictures of both kinds (mentioned in answer 1 and 2) is impressible. And, selling and purchasing is allowable and earning is also Halal.
