Keeping figurines in the home

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I need advice regarding 2 small crystal figurines I have of lions and 1 porcelain Japanese lady – these are not idols they were purely for decorative reasons – except the Japanese lady I obtained when my grandmother passed away may Allah bless her soul and prior to me being a revert.

My concern is that by having these on the house even under those circumstances am I still sinning & risking the angels not entering our house? If so then if they are boxed away & not on display & hidden would that be permissible or will the angels still not enter? Do I need to actually put the box in storage away from my house or put with a non Islamic friend to store away for me? These items do hold some meaningful value to me however only on regards to my husband bought me the lions without realising and now is concerned & as mentioned above the item collected from my grandmothers passing. 

Bismillaah

A: Obviously the angels won’t enter the house. You should destroy these things.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
