Medical student selling human skeleton Halal or haram?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

Assalamualaikum ,I am a medical student. For Educational purposes I have to buy a human bone just like other students,from a senior Medical student.. And that costs me around 20 to 30 thousand taka. After studying the human bone, now i want to sell it to another junior student ,just the way i bought it. Now is it halal for me to sell that human bones?
Please note that, # I don’t know whether the bone is from a muslim or non-muslim human.
# all medical students have to buy a set of human bone & there is no alternative plastic bones allowed in our country for studying.
# some said, as i bought that with halal money, now i can only sell in that rate to get my money back.is it correct?
#I can’t bury the bones due to having some judicial Law issues.

Assalamualaikum, JajaKaAllah

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

You may sell the bones to the junior student at the same price you bought it.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
