Selling a toy which contains music

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: We have recently received stock of an Islamic toy which we were unaware had music… The toy has many beneficial learning pages such as duas, surahs, Arabic alphabets, etc. but there is a button which plays nasheeds with musical instruments in the background.

Will it be permissible to sell such a toy? If the toy is sold with a note on how to remove the music and if the customer purchases it and chooses not to remove the music wire, will the seller be sinful?


A: It is not right.

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