Q: When I went on the beach, I found a bucket and spade (which the children play with). The items were lying around close to the sea. The water of the sea was very close about to take away the items. I took the bucket and spade assuming it would have washed away in the sea if I hadn’t taken it. Is it permissible for me to give it to my children to play with? In the above situation if the answer is no then what should I do with the items?
A: Give it to some poor person.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
