Purse with an animate object

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I wanted to know that as in our religion it is haraam to keep pics, statues,photos in the home because we pray only Allah (Ta’ala). Now I have a purse with a key chain. On the key chain a small dog is hung. I bought that key chain because I liked that doll. I don’t pray to that doll. It is always hung to my key chain of the purse. Wanted to know is it right or wrong to keep that key chain with that doll.


A: It will be allowed if it is so small that it is not easily visible when it is placed on the ground.

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